25 Awesome Things To Do On & Around Your Campus

Colleges love to brag about how they have 150+ student clubs and organizations or 15 ways/places for you to eat lunch on campus, but what are some general things that most campuses offer around the U.S.? We decided to come up with a list of just a few of the thousands of possible things you can do while on and/or around campus.

Remember: These are definitely not the only things available on campus, so go check out what’s available at your own school!


Top 25

  2. Chat with a professor They are actually really interesting people and will probably be interested in this awesome diet and blog you follow.
  3. Join a club There are so, so many choices. The hardest part is going to be narrowing it down.
  4. Become class president It’s lofty, but it’s doable and you will meet a lot of great people along the way.
  5. Start your own a club Why not? Start a Crossfit or a Ancestral Health club!
  6. Get a free haircut College is a time to experiment, so see if you can have a friend do it! If it doesn’t work out, you can always fix it.

  20. Ride your bike Find a trail and a group of biker buddies to go out with on the weekends.

  23. PARTY!!!!! Because you are after all, a college student.
  24. Laugh Because you are after all, human.
  25. Get good grades But don’t stress over the bad ones.

    Great article,

    Have you had the chance to talk to any professors about the Paleo diet/ancestral health? As a Chem major I have to do at least 2 semesters of research and I was considering talking to some of the anthropology/biochem professors but I don’t have much faith that the paleo diet will be readily accepted. Thoughts?

    Start a campus wide game of zombie tag! One of my good friends works for our Student Involvement Network, and he started zombie tag today! I got to be one of the original zombies so I get to practice my sprinting and sneaking skills by chasing humans around all day!

      Sounds like quite the game! And very Primal I might add. Use those natural sprinting abilities and sneaking skills for good things! Grok on!
