The 6 Hottest Student Parties on the Planet

Published: November 23, 2016

1. 4/20 Smoke Out – University of Colorado at Boulder, USA

Yes, April 20th is Mary Jane’s birthday in the US, and in the highest profile (pun intended) university in Colorado, a relative pioneer in her recreational legalisation, it is celebrated wildly.

2. FS: The Charity Fashion Show – University of St Andrews, Scotland

An unbelievably well-run student event attracts the finest of St Andrews’ both on- and off the runway for a night of models, bottles and all for a tremendous charitable cause selected by committee every year.

3. St Patrick’s Day Celebrations – Trinity College Dublin, Ireland

Have I ever tried Guinness? Are you kidding? I once celebrated Paddy’s Day in Dublin with students at Trinity.

4. Eliat – IDC Herzliya, Israel

This simply has to win the prize for sexiest student party ever captured on Youtube.

5. Kvalborg – Lund University, Sweden

The Swedes have always known how to look good partying (see below). At the ancient Lund University in southern Sweden they welcome the summer with a bang during their “Kvalborg” celebrations.

6. Trinity College May Ball – University of Cambridge, England

Pure, raw, sheer black tie class. Unsurprisingly, as they’ve had 150 years to refine. Enjoy!

(P.s. Cambridge also features in the list of the world’s four oldest academic institutions)
