   This is my 1st week of my 1st semester staying in a college dorm and I am really enjoying myself. I have 11 other suite mates who are all sighted, mostly Freshman and Sophomores like me. They do great at helping me out if/when I need help. The other night I was here and had the place mostly to myself with the exception of 3 or 4 of the suite mates. I found out that everyone else had got to a party at someone’s house and weren’t coming back until 1 or 2 in the morning. There was alcohol and dances at that party and I don’t know what else. The next day one of the suite mates approached me and said that she wanted me to experience a party like that, and my response to her was I’d consider if she had me do it safely and that I’d never gone to one before because I’d never been invited. So what have been your experiences at those kinds of parties if you have gone? I am here in Chicago  on exchange from another region, and it would make me feel better if my host family who is half an hour away and some of my suite mate had each others’ numbers in case something happened at a party and I was involved. Do you agree? Are such parties typically enjoyed by NFB folks? I am really not much of a person who drinks are there other things that happen at these kinds of parties? Aside from possible drunk driving on the parts of attendees is there other possible risks/consequences  to going?  If so  should I politely decline? Thank you in advance, and I hope you all are enjoying the new school year!:)
