At Wooster, students party on campus—going to house parties, the Underground, or even just their friend's dorm room. Every weekend, there is usually a party thrown by a different organization or Greek group. And if not, students don’t mind throwing their own with their hallmates. The Underground is popular on Friday nights, but as you become an upperclassman, it becomes less appealing to go for the dance party; seniors usually stick to UG happy hour instead. When students do go off campus for nightlife, they go out for drinks at the local restaurants and bars. There are a lot of restaurants uptown that have drink specials, and Wooster students especially enjoy El Campesino's Wednesday night $2 margarita deal. It is only an $8 cab ride uptown, which a group of friends often split.
But, if you don't drink, don't think that you aren't welcome at Wooster's party scene. The parties at Wooster are what you make of them. And if you're with your friends and having fun, that's all that matters. There are also plenty of substance-free activities and events held on the weekends for students who prefer to steer clear of the party scene entirely.
