The time as come: your first Friday night at college. You have spent months on the couch preparing for this milestone in your life by watching movie after movie about college. After four years of attending those juvenile high school parties it is finally time to join the big ranks. As you shower and primp to look your best visions of flip cup, chanting, and keg stands dance in your head. However, things are never what you expect them to be. The first college party you attend will probably be absolutely nothing like the movies, but it doesn’t mean it won’t be entertaining. With a little help from our Friends, here is your first college party as told by GIFs.

It all begins when your roommate’s older brother invites you both to an off-campus party

False alarm. He blew right by you towards the hot, leggy and underdressed blonde in the back. Duh.

I don’t think anyone noticed that I thought he was coming to me. It’s okay.
