9 Things To Do During Your Interim Free Time At Wofford

Interim at Wofford is great for so many reasons. The free time we get, however, can be a blessing or a curse.

9 Things To Do During Your Interim Free Time At Wofford

The most wonderful time of the year is now over, or is it? We're back from break, and we've officially started Interim at Wofford. This year is my first Interim, and I already can see why so many people are attracted to Wofford because of it. We all go to a class for three hours a day, and then we're done. Whether it is the Vegan Yogi or the Knitting class, they all give us a new hobby for the month of January.

However, one thing I've noticed is that we all have so much free time. Those words didn't even go together last semester! I have been online shopping, napping, and going out just to fill my time. But if I did this all month, I'd get soo bored. So, I've made a list of thing to do or places to go during Interim so that maybe I won't go to Krispy Kreme twice in one day—yikes.

1. Tour around Spartanburg

During our busier semesters, we don't really get to leave Wofford that much. But Glendale Shoals is about 10 minutes away, and it is absolutely beautiful. There's also really nice murals all around town, we just have to find them. You may even find a secret study spot for next semester! #perks

2. Go to Pretty Place

Pretty Place is such a gorgeous chapel overlooking the mountains in Cleveland, SC, an hour and thirty minutes from Wofford. Go here after your class gets out or even on the weekend, either way, Pretty Place is a beautiful place to go to get some fresh air and relax.

3. Movie Night with your friends

If you aren't feeling a night out—face it, we all need a break sometimes— consider a night in with some of your friends. Order pizza, do face masks and have a Netflix movie marathon. Believe me when I say that nothing is better to pass the time than that.

4. Take a day trip to a city close by

Seriously, we have a whole month of free time, we may as well take advantage of that and take other day trips. Greenville, Charlotte, and Asheville are all within two hours of Wofford. That opens up so many doors and memory-making adventures.

5. Enjoy the downtime

Maybe with all the hustle and bustle you might wanna take a break from it all. Take a break for yourself. Lay in bed, read a book, or go grab yourself a hot now donut from Krispy Kreme—you won't regret it.

6. Have a game night with your friends

Do I even need to elaborate when I say Cards Against Humanity? It's a great game night, and you'll get to know your friends on the deepest level.

7. Take a nap

You know what? Napping is king at college, even now when we have nothing to do. Take that nap, you deserve it.

8. Go to Hatcher Garden in Spartanburg

Little did I know, Spartanburg has a Woodland Preserve in town, only 2 miles from Wofford. If you're in the mood to go see some natural beauty, outside of Wofford, then take a mini trip here.

9. Find a new Netflix series

You know what, we have all the time in the world during Interim, why not use it for something we all enjoy? Binge-watch all the shows you want and feel completely guilt-free, knowing you don't have any work to worry about.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends. Many were skeptical that people with diabetes could complete such a physically challenging trip without putting themselves in danger due to their disease.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.


September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present. Yet it's critical to understand that suicide awareness is not an annual Instagram hashtag to use and forget. Actively advocating for mental health resources, progress in education, and a broken stigma is an everyday ask — an activity that we can each participate in.
