Grinnell students study hard and party hard. Every weekend there’s at least one party going on, so drunken debauchery is never lacking. The most well-known parties are the Harris parties. School-based groups fund them, and students frequently find people at their doors collecting for beer money. Most theme parties vary from creative to mundane. These include the Underwear Ball, Halloween Masquerade Party, Fetish Party, and a cross-dressing party named after the Mary B. James dorms. They include loud music, lots of dancing, cool light effects, and copious amounts of free beer. Someone throws a Harris party almost every weekend, and the administration has no problem.
Dorm parties, while less popular, also occur frequently. They take place in some random residence hall and may or may not include loud music and lights. They almost always include alcohol, and many cup-wielding organizers will show up to beg for donations for these events. There is also a bar that tends to be open at all hours called Rabbit's Tavern, but it caters mainly toward town residents who work night jobs.
