1. Water Bottles

Maybe the most obvious trick in the book, but a good and effective one nonetheless. Vodka works well in plastic water bottles. For darker drinks use an opaque, reusable bottle. Then, pop the bottles in your fridge or freezer. Easy and eco-friendly!

2. Shoes

The weather in Philly is getting shitty. Time to break out your Uggs. When they're not busy warming or protecting your feet, these tall boots are a great place to stash alcohol. Recommended for use with beer or anything in a thin glass bottle (think Smirnoff Ice, Ciroc, Mike's Hard, etc.), which are easier to fit.

3. Airplane Bottles

Some of you have rooms that are ridiculously small and every inch of space is already being used. If all else fails, invest in the mini-size bottles of liquor. Although less fun to get drunk with, they are very easy to stash almost anywhere.

4. Behind your Desk

Most of the desks found in Penn dorms have some hidden space in between them and the wall. Putting your alcohol in this space is pretty simple, however slightly risky. Warning: all your computer wires and power strips are likely down there, so make sure nothing spills.

5. Suitcase

You know that suitcase or duffle bag you used to travel during fall break? It probably won't be used again until Thanksgiving, so you might as well put alcohol in it. Just remember to take the leftover drinks out before trying to get on a plane!

6. Binders

Place the bottle of alcohol on a shelf, and then cover that bottle with an empty binder. Two inch and firmer binders probably work best. School supplies have never been so useful!

7. Pillows

If you have a lot of pillows on your bed, throw a bottle or two in a pillowcase and put all your other pillows in front of it. This trick is better for short-term stashing, since it gets in the way of your bed's actual purpose. Sleep or alcohol: the Sophie's choice for college students.

8. Trash Can

Yes, you can and should put full bottles of alcohol in your (preferably empty) trash or recycling bin. Hopefully the bin has a lid or is tall enough to conceal the bottles. If not, put some clean trash over it (like newspapers or plastic bags).

9. Laundry Bag

This one is pretty self-explanatory. Plus, yesterday's dirty socks smell so bad, no one would ever willingly look there.
