This may seem like a dumb question, but what, exactly, does it mean to "party?" I realize that college students at a party aren't playing pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey, but what do they expect to happen at a party? Drinking, I realize. But what else? Dancing? Drugs? Conversation? Random hookups? Sex in the bathroom? Crowds of people standing around aimlessly while loud music plays? All of the above?
I ask this after reading a number of threads about the social life at various colleges. Maybe there is no clear answer.
