Party Scene

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: The frats have been on probation recently, but now coming off probation, there is a lot more to nightlife. If you are underage I would NOT go near the bars unless you have a fake ID, in that case they barely check to see if the ID is real. If under 21 I would go to some of the sport houses or a frat. Lacrosse and soccer is always packed, but fun to go to. Hockey is the best to go to in the winter time. Beer is available at all of them, but if you are looking for hard liquor I suggest buying yourself or going to a trust- worthy frat that will not drug you. Kappa Sig and PSK are great places to go as a freshmen. The cocane is present at some of the frats, but there is no pressure to do so. Most parties shut down around 1 and everyone goes downtown.

Party Scene: If you are a freshmen boy that is not a legacy or in a sport, you aren't getting in anywhere but possibly Chi Phi. It's the nerdy frat that most girls don't go to. If you are a girl you can get in anywhere. Kappa Sig, PSK, and Sig are the best places to go. Lacrosse and soccer are also a lot of fun.

Party Scene: I think the school is working hard to dissolve any remaining image of HWS as a party school. Granted, I haven't been out a lot, but we don't throw too many huge parties and at least this year the school has been pushing the fraternities to keep things civil. On the other hand when I felt like going out there was always something going on.

I think if you're looking for an easily accessible and consistent night, life HWS is a great fit. Also, there is very minimal pressure to participate in the party scene if that's not your thing.

Party Scene: The party scene is bad because there is a limited amount on campus, the party life is not extreme. When looking for a party, race, unfortunately, plays a part on if you can get invited or let in.

Party Scene: I know it has been a tough year for the college. Dealing with the New York Times article was definitely going to change the school. But damn, the nightlife is rough. Yeah, if you know people from prep school or have a ton of money, there is usually a party happening. But there can be nights when absolutely nothing happens. The hardest part is actually getting into a party. Once you are in, it's alright. Almost always dancing and loud music. The best part by far however is the free booze. There is never a cover fee, and there is always free booze/liquor early in the night. The keg might eventually run out, but by that point most people are already drunk.
