We all know that there is no celebration quite like New Year’s because this is the chance to start all over again and set new goals in your life.

The college life has a lot of exciting things to offer, but it’s always great to have something fun to do for the New Year’s celebration.

In this article, we are going to give you some great New Year’s celebration ideas while you are in college.

Travel on a student discount offer

There are some great student discount offers for travel during the holidays and New Year celebrations and you can take advantage of this.

You could end up celebrating your New Year’s Eve in a very exotic location for a very affordable cost if you know where to look.

Get a group of friends together and bar hop

The idea of bar hopping for New Year’s Eve is always appealing because you will be able to meet a lot of different people and then you can decide which bar you want to be at when the countdown starts.

This is always a great and very fun activity to choose, but make sure you guys have enough money for the numerous cab rides or at least a designated driver.

Go on a camping trip

We all know that most people like to enjoy the fireworks and the noise that comes with this celebration, but you could enjoy a new way to celebrate the New Year by being with family or close friends and receiving the New Year next to a campfire with marshmallows and some cool stories to tell.

Visit your parents

Yes, this might be the last resort for some people, but if you haven’t seen them for a while, it might be a good idea to visit your parents for New Year’s.

They are going to love having you home and you will also be glad that you visited.

Go to the beach

The beach is always a fun place to be when the clock starts counting down to the New Year. If you have a beach near your campus, you could organize a trip with your roommates and have a blast.

Host a dinner

It can always be a nice idea to host a dinner at your house and invite your closest friends over. This is a great way to start nice conversations and catch up on the old days.

Make sure that you make enough food for everyone who will be invited to the dinner. You don’t want to end up with people wanting seconds and having to say you ran out of food.

Stay home and be by yourself

It might seem like a boring thing to do, but it’s a great idea if you want to have time to reflect on what you plan to do in the coming year.

Most people are out celebrating and they don’t even take the time to consider the things that they plan to do in order to ensure that next year is going to be successful.


Celebrating the new year does not have to be limited to any specific location or tradition.

Some people have spent the New Year all by themselves and this has been a great way for them to plan for the coming year, while others prefer a big and crowded celebration with lots of fireworks.

Whatever you decide to do, it should be something that you enjoy and maybe you just want to save some money this year instead of celebrating outside or hosting any event or party and that is also perfectly fine.
