I'm sorry, but I strongly disagree with this advice!
Yes, college is about studying, but you shouldn't disregard your social
life. You need to learn to branch out and make new friends and build useful
connections for the future.
Unfortunately, some blind people turn out socially awkward and very naïve
because, for a variety of reasons, they have not been  exposed to  the real
world, and they often don't know how to deal  with life challenges
effectively. College life can be very exciting outside of  classes, and it
will  present you with many teachable moments. Your college experience
should not be only about books  and exams, but also about fun times,
activities with your friends, and various memories that you can retrieve
when you get older.
College is the time in your life when you should break out of your shell and
fully participate  in the world around you.
I strongly recommend you to definitely accept the  offer and attend a party!

Many people go to college for different reasons.  For me it is all about the
academics and social life comes afterward.  Yes I think you should politely
decline this invitation.  It would be helpful for your sweet mates to have
contact information for your host family.
