Baby, it’s cold outside! Winter weather has swept much of the nation in the past few weeks. With frigid temperatures, snow, cold rain, and sleet – venturing any further than your bed may seem like a task.

Here a few fun ideas to help you and maybe even your roommate(s) pass some time away:

1. Card Games

Speed, Spit, and maybe even Go Fish are great card games to play. If you want to make it a little more entertaining, invite your floormates to a tournament. Prize for the winner of the tournament is semester-long bragging rights.

2. Movie Marathon

This is a great time to get to know your floormates! Ask everyone to pick his or her favorite movie and have a movie marathon! Getting to know each other’s taste in movies is a fantastic way to build some common ground between you and your floormates … and kill some time!

3. Read

It’s an old-school way to pass the time! Plus, there are some really great books that will soon be turned into movies, like The Fault in Our Stars, by John Green. Check them out before they head to the big screen.

4. Start Blogging

You have thoughts and opinions, so why not share them? There are several hosting sites that you can choose from: WordPress, Blogger, Tumblr, and many others! Write about things that inspire you, things you’re interested in, or even your favorite sports team. If you are trapped inside, blogging can take up tons of time just to jot down things you’re thinking about.

Being a college student doesn’t have to mean that you have to drink or party all the time, or at all. There are other things you can do on a college campus to have fun. Here are a few ideas for you to consider:

1. Go To A Student Org Event

There can be several different fun events to go to hosted by student organizations. These can range from outdoor (or indoor) movies, comedians, game nights (ranging from bingo to video games), concerts, or guest speakers. Often times these events are free or under $5 and you can sometimes even win prizes for going to them! You already pay for most of them with your student tuition so you might as well take advantage!

2. Rec Room

Do you like to play pool? Ping Pong? Foosball? Or endless video games? Then go spend some time at your university’s recreation room! Bring a student ID and you can sign out a set of balls for pool, any video game you want, or paddles and a ping pong ball and stay as long as you want (or at least until it closes). This is a great way to hang out with friends and take a quick study break too!

3. Intramurals & Fitness Programs

Every school has intramural leagues for different sports like flag football, floor hockey, broomball, ultimate frisbee, or soccer. Some leagues are for men only, for women only, and some are coed. The winner of each intramural sport usually wins some sort of prize and it is free to play so what do you have to lose? If team sports aren’t your thing, you could also join a zumba, yoga, or kickboxing class. These are great ways to have fun, stay in shape, and meet new people.

As much as I’m in denial about the whole “g” word, it is time to face the fact that my undergraduate career is in fact almost over.  The fact that I only have a couple more months as a student here at University of Delaware is exciting and terrifying all at the same time. I decided to compile a list of the 5 best things I have done since being in college the past 3.5 years because I think you should consider doing them if you haven’t already!

1. Rush a Sorority/Fraternity

Sorority recruitment changed my life.  I was a transfer student to UD my sophomore year and having come from Syracuse – I knew NO ONE.  Joining my sorority absolutely changed my life and my college experience for the better.

2. Run A Race

I registered for my first marathon last year and am so happy I did.  I’m not saying that you have to go run a marathon, but consider doing a 5k or that beloved Color Run; running a race with friends is an experience you won’t forget.

3. Live Off Campus

To live in an apartment with three other friends my senior year has been an unbelievable experience.  Not only is it a ton of fun, I finally escaped that dreadful dining hall food and can cook myself dinner in my own kitchen.

4. Road Trip

It doesn’t have to be far or take a long time, just go somewhere fun and spend a day forgetting about classes and exams.  Taking road trips down to the beach with my best friends has created memories that will last a lifetime.

5. Take Pictures

Trust me, if you don’t have at least 500 pictures to document your college career, you will regret it.  These are supposed to be the best 4 years of your life, and you don’t want to forget a second of them.

Do any of these things while you can! Your college years go by faster than you think!

The summer months are my favorite reprieve from the constant demands of school year life. I get to work an easy job, wake up late if I want, and stay up even later. It doesn’t matter if its Tuesday or Saturday, the expensive college textbooks aren’t on my desk and there is a bathing suit drying in my bathroom. With school out of session, it is a great time to get outdoors and enjoy the weather!

Living in a decent sized city easily keeps me outside in the forest or by the river for at least 12 hours a day. Here are some great outdoor activity ideas that you can put to use this summer!

Visit a Lake / River

Enjoy a sunny day by a lake or river. Lakes and rivers usually are more secluded and allow for a more intimate setting with friends. Consider the option to rent a speedboat, canoe, or kayak when you go. There is a lot more to do by the water than just swim!

Go for a Hike / Walk

Going for a hike or walk is always a fun way to get exercise and enjoy the beautiful weather. It can also be a fun daytime precursor to a BBQ with friends that can make relaxing at the BBQ that much better.

Picnic & Park Day

Bigger cities offer parks with picnic tables and grills for people to meet up for a summer picnic or party. This is a great idea if you need a big area for a gathering.

Outdoor Entertainment

Some towns offer free entertainment, like plays and concerts. Food stands from local restaurants and breweries may even be present that can help people stay energized for summer night dancing. Most city websites offer information on events like this, so go take a look at what your city has to offer!

Fairs and Rodeos

Fairs and rodeos are always a really fun way to let loose with friends. The bull riding is great entertainment and its hard to pass up on elephant ears and cotton candy.
