Fun Free Activities For College Students

University can get a bit repetitive at times. You go to lectures, you study in the library and you go on nights out every weekend. Try something different. 

Spending time with friends is, in and of itself, a great way to pass the time without spending a lot of money. But if you and your friends are used to going out to clubs, pubs or eateries together as your way of hanging out, all these things can cost a good few rands. 

The biggest challenge, for most students, is dodging boredom — figuring out fun things to do that don’t cost any money. We hear this question over and over again, “what can I do with my friends that doesn’t cost money?”

Go on a hike or a long walk

Look up some local hiking or walking trails. Let yourself get absorbed into nature and simply enjoy the journey. This is a fun, free way to connect and spend time with your friends.

Go to the park

This might not be for everyone, but going to the park can be pretty fun. Pack a picnic. Hang out. Watch people. Play on the swings. There is so much to do. 

Organize a game’s evening

We all have board games stashed away somewhere. Organize a game’s evening where everyone just gathers around for a night of laughs and fun. If you do not have board games, create games, like 30 seconds or charades. 

Volunteer together

Offer to do the cleaning at a senior club or hang out with the kids at Charity events. After a few hours of volunteering together, you will have new respect for each other and something new to chat about.

Start a workout routine

If you are not into fitness or just getting started, try basic exercises like push-ups, sit-ups, jogging – require no extra equipment at all. Spend some time doing research into fitness and figuring out a basic workout routine that will work for you.

Play a sport together

Take a soccer ball to the park and kick it around. Pull out a frisbee and toss it around. Take a basketball down to the park and shoot some hoops. Play catch with a ball. It doesn’t take much equipment at all to play a sport together and it gives everyone involved a bunch of healthy exercise and fun.

Hit the beach

Heading to the beach can be a great way to get together and hang out with friends after a long semester. 

Binge-watch a great TV series or movies

Catching up on your favourite series, episode after episode, is a great way to not spend money. Many libraries also loan out complete seasons of TV series on DVD and some movies for free. 

Changing how you socialize can add much-needed variety to your life, boost the quality of your friendships, and save you some money. Encourage your friends to contribute ideas to make it happen. 

You don’t need to spend much to have lots of fun with your friends. Pick a few of these ideas and start trying them out this weekend.
