How to Have Great Fun at College

Jul 7, 2008
Having fun in college can be very easy for some but difficult for others. The world is filled with many different people with many different hobbies. Some find college built for their mindset while others find it frustrating and boring. College can fun for everyone if you think of the ideas that can keep your entertained. I'll show you a few examples of how to have fun on campus without getting in trouble.

Campus sponsored events - Depending on the campus you're attending, there's probably an event going on everyday that you're not aware of. A good way to see what events are going on is to either check the local bulletin boards, the college website or ask fellow classmates. Sometimes you'll be amazed at what kind of events the college offers. Who knows? There may be something you love that you can make a ton of friends and have fun at the same time!

Some of the events that you may find yourself attending are block parties, organized sporting leagues, movies, concerts, social clubs, chess clubs, etc. I guarantee that you if you look at the list of events that you'll find something that will cater your needs.

Join an organization - No matter what college you're attending, you'll always find an organization. If you're not familiar with what n organization is, it's a group that usually has a focus or cause. Groups like MADD are a perfect example where their group focuses on mothers against drunk driving. If you have a view on something and you want to get with a group that has similar thoughts, an organization may be for you.

Host parties - If you're renting out a house or you simply know of a big common ground, hosting a party or get together might be one of the best times you'll ever have. Simply tell your friends and the word will spread very quickly. You can simply put on the invitation that everyone needs to bring their own drinks and food. This way, you'll only be responsible for your house or the area. Parties don't always have to include alcoholic drinks; instead you can a fun time without them and just socialize with friends instead.

Think like home - Staying on campus can make some people very home sick. Instead, try and think of what you did while you were at home to keep busy. Did you play a lot of video games? Did you read a lot? Try and pretend that your dorm room and college is your home now where you and your family live. If you can condition yourself to do this, keeping busy and having fun shouldn't be a problem. Remember, you can't live with mommy and daddy forever.

As you can see by these few options that college can be a blast if you become motivated and find ways to have fun. Sitting in your dorm all day and being depressed won't be fun. Just remember that the fun won't come to you, you'll have to go out there and find it!
