Fall is a great time for students. There are a lot of things going on, both on and off campus, the weather is great, and people are feeling festive. So take advantage of these things and have a great time this fall with some of these activities.
One of the common fall activities on campuses around the country is going to college football games. Whether your school is Division I or Division III, it can be a blast watching your team take on its rival. Many students get really hyped up for the games and get dressed all in school colors, paint their faces, and have chants to cheer on their team.
Even if you’re not a huge football fan, or a sports fan at all, going to games can be a lot of fun. It’s a great way to get into the school spirit, and there aren’t many better ways to spend an early Saturday afternoon.
If you’re less into watching sports than playing them, fall is perfect for throwing a baseball, kicking a soccer ball, or tossing a frisbee.
Do anything to get outside while it’s nice! Going on walks and looking at the fall colors is tough to beat when the trees start turning.
If you’re a runner or a cyclist, this is one of the best times of the year to get out training, especially because you might be doing most of your training inside for the next couple months.
An often-overlooked fall activity is going to an apple orchard. Young kids love to do this, but it’s easy to lose sight of it as you get older.
Get a few people together and go pick apples for an hour. Eat a slice of apple pie, drink a glass of cider, and go on a hayride!
There are all kinds of things that you can do at an orchard, and they’re all pretty cheap. It’s a good way to spend an afternoon, and orchards are beautiful places to spend time.
It’s a little ways off, but it’s not too early to start thinking about Halloween, the favored fall celebration of many college students.
Hold a party at your house or apartment, or go trekking from one costume part to another to see how all of your friends dressed up. There are plenty of haunted houses, theme parks, and city-wide celebrations that you can hit up, as well.
Get creative! There are all kinds of things to do on Halloween.
Whatever you decide to do, we highly recommend getting outside. Fall is a beautiful time of year, and it’s best to take advantage of it while you can!
