There is no shortage of things to do when you are on a college campus. Still, the trouble for many college students is affording the activities they want to pursue over their semester. Here are some cheap and fun activities to try out this semester at school. There is hiking for free and going to school sporting events. Also, there are old video games and cheap cable in your college home. Any way you look at it, there are plenty of great activities to do when boredom strikes you some college weekend.


Hiking with Friends


Hiking is incredible for your body and mind. Also, it is an enjoyable activity to do with some friends if you are a college student. For example, if you live in West Virginia for school, there is Blackwater Falls hiking. Going up to this state park means seeing a massive forest and sixty-two-foot cascading waterfall in one of the most photographed areas of the state. It is a blast to be among the people flocking to hike and camp there in the summer. Nothing beats exercise for college students and going up on a trail when you are in school can be an experience that you remember for the rest of your life.


Cheap Activities


One thing that gets many students fired up with school spirit is the campus sporting events at their college. Attending your school’s sporting events can be a fantastic idea because they are fun, exciting events and because students often receive discounted tickets. Sometimes students can even get in for free at these campus events. You will love watching your school’s best athletes take on the competition, and these can be unique social events as well. One thing you do not want to leave your college without doing enough is going to your school’s sporting events. On-campus, there is usually a recreation center full of fun things to do, much like a rec center back in your neighborhood. Going to the rec center is an excellent way to have a fun time for little cost.



While the rec center may not charge per visit while you are in school, there is usually a fee that is part of your tuition. Grabbing some friends and enjoying the rec center can be a fantastic way to have plenty of fun with the money you have to give your school in the first place.


Activities for Home


Old video games are an incredible value, and that is crucial for your thin college student budget. If you are selecting games that offer some length, you can buy a few used games at the start of the semester and play them until the end. As a college student, you can realistically expect to beat four titles over a four-month semester. If you like, there are also infinitely repayable titles like sports games that can stretch the value hundreds of entertainment hours further. There are video games to fit anyone’s budget if you have a system already. Video games are incredibly entertaining activities to do at home when you are on campus. Another effortless way to stretch your entertainment budget at school is to get a cheap cable and internet package. At the start of the semester, you may see a flier make its way around the apartment building that offers a cheap TV and internet deal. Getting this cable deal may be an affordable way for you to stay up to date on your latest TV while you get yourself internet for schoolwork and fun too. Without enough activities to do at home, you may find yourself getting bored in college apart from being in the classroom. However, there should be no shortage of affordable entertainment to get for your dorm room or apartment.


Conclusion


You want to have as many entertainment options as possible when you go to college. With a bit of planning, you can ensure you will not grow bored during your next semester. Try some of these enjoyable activities out when you start your semester at school. From free or cheap activities like hiking and school events to your dorm or apartment activities like old video games and cheap cable, there are plenty of fun and affordable activities to pursue throughout your next college semester. College should be a blast, even if you are someone who finds themselves stuck with nothing to do a lot.
