Being that Luther is a small town in the Midwest made up of primarily students, you shouldn’t expect to find much nightlife. There are always plenty of people with lots of alcohol looking for a party, but the locations are few and far between. Drinking in the dorms can be fun for a while, but after a few semesters of it, students go batty. Off-campus parties are a lot of fun but are rarely held with an open invitation.
On-campus dances and parties are rare for Luther, so students have to find their own fun. This comes from creativity for the most part: theme parties are held nearly every weekend, and range from hobby- or profession-related ideas like sports players or doctors, all the way to utter madness like the '80s Rocker party. Many students also break up the lack of nightclubs by holding their own entertainment—beer pong, flip cup, and DDR/Guitar Hero tournaments take place as often as theme parties, sometimes even at the same get-together. But for students who need a large group of people to get down, look to Roscoe’s. And if that doesn’t work, you’ll need a car to find other options.
