5 Activities For The College Students Who Don't Wanna Get Drunk

Because there are way funner things to do than stand around awkwardly at a party.

5 Activities For The College Students Who Don't Wanna Get Drunk

Sometimes, it seems like college is more like a super-exclusive bar that takes tens of thousands of dollars to get into instead of a school. Students' lives seem to revolve around their next party or bar visit instead of their next exam or job interview. Colleges sell community instead of academics, making students believe that they're attending college for the experience and memories instead of job opportunities and technical skill.

All of this can be extremely frustrating for college students who have no interest in getting blackout drunk with a bunch of acquaintances they barely know from their classes. Maybe it's because you simply don't like the taste of alcohol or because you don't want to get into the trouble that usually ensues, but either way, there are plenty of fun things for you and your other non-drinking friends to do instead of reluctantly go to parties.

1. Go out to eat

Why drink when you can fill your belly with delicious food? Talking and hanging out with your friends over a nice meal is much more intimate than trying to scream-talk at a party or in a bar.

2. Have a movie night

Watching movies is one of the funnest forms of entertainment there are. Find a great movie to see in the theatre, or curl up with an old favorite at home. It's relaxing and another great time to indulge in some yummy food like popcorn!

3. Go out in nature

This one might not be possible for all college campuses, but if you live near nature, go immerse yourself in it! Being in nature does wonders for our physical and mental health, and it is downright beautiful.

4. Go to a concert

Whether it's a local band or a world tour, there is nothing more exhilarating than going to a great live concert. Take a look at the tours coming to your city, and make it a date with your friends!

5. Go Shopping

Even if it's only window-shopping, walking around the mall with your favorite people can be heaps of fun.

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
