It is truly a rare thing to hear a college student say that he is bored when there is just so much college fun to be had. Campuses are oozing with fun, even during dead week. College fun comes in all kinds of activities, and depending on who you are and what you like to do that is fun, you could end up having the time of your life in school with a little social effort.
When people hear the words college fun, the first thing that comes to many minds are the very cliche college parties. Drinking, sex, and more drinking make up the framework of the college party world, and what on Earth is more fun than a party? Contrary to popular belief, however, the majority of college parties are fairly law abiding, just dont card anyone, and rarely are law enforcement officials called out. Parties at college do live up to their reputation as far as having a good time goes, and most grads look back at their days at school and always think of the parties with a chuckle.
College fun for most people includes going to the sporting events, spearheaded by those great activities known as tailgate parties, more partying. Dressing in jerseys, gussied up in paint in the colors of the school and screaming at the top of your lungs in support of your college team takes a lot of energy. College party people know this, which is why before the games they tailgate and barbeque hours before game time.
The need for college fun is also fed with hundreds of different clubs, groups, and activities that are actually school related. Science clubs, music groups, sports teams, and special interest organizations provide a much needed break from the intense studying that leads to the ultimate goal of education: the college degree. These groups for fun can surround students with others that have common interests, which opens their social world up, and being around peers that are like yourself is a great way to decompress.
College fun varies immensely depending on the student and his or her likes and dislikes. From self defense classes to the chess club to intramural sports, taking advantage of the hundreds of opportunities to have a little fun creates an important balance between difficult, sometimes impossible, coursework and having time to do things that you really enjoy, like taking a shopping trip with the girls in your sorority. Case in Point: Get out there and have fun at college, because the years go by very quickly. The closer you get to graduating and working, the farther away from being a child and playing you will become.
