You are 21 and an official adult now! Have fun!

As each year ticked off, you waited for the fun of being ‘legal’! And now you made it. And if you are turning 21 during your college year, then you are probably going to want to celebrate and celebrate big. Whether you want to have a night out with friends at the College Park bars or spend the weekend in D.C., the options are endless and plentiful. Being 21 in college means that you can finally get into places you were not allowed in before and the fun can really begin.

One of the most popular traditions for girls when they turn 21 is having a “shot book”. A shot-book is a book full of pages that each friend will make for the birthday girl. The page will include sentimental memories and pictures you share with the birthday girl. At the top of the page, you will dedicate them with a specific type of shot, such as a tequila or kamikaze shot. After everyone has finished their pages, someone will print out all of the slides and put everything together to make a special book for their birthday. When it is time for the actual birthday party, everyone will come together and present the book! Girls will read their slides and then hand the birthday girl their shot of choice. Following this, it is common to go out to the bars and celebrate further. This tradition is so special and meaningful, and just a fun way to celebrate your friends big 21 birthday!
