Overtime, I realized how stressful and Tiring things can be in school environment ; from running to classes and attending to other academic activities that take a toll on our time.
However, it should be of note that apart from the school activities, students can participate in other activities that adds to the personal, social and intellectual growth outside the four walls of the class and library .
Some of these activities includes ;
1) Getting involved in Sports - You can engage in interesting sports in your school area. This allows you build your body and also serves as an arena to meet with new people. This might now necessarily be football, you can get involved playing basketball, volleyball, cricket, among others.
2) Attending social events - There are various social events organized by different brands in the university environment. You an create time to attend some of these events with friends so as to create long lasting memories.
3) Take a walk around your university environment.
4) Watch Movies or go to the cinema.
5) Start a conversation with strangers.
You can add to the list of things that can be done outside the four walls of the class in a university environment.
Thanks for this piece, it's really encouraging. Students can also join and participate in social activities... The trendy problem facing students now is suicide.. Joining anti suicide clubs and going out for advocacy will not only help susceptible victims but oneself..
School can be so interesting and at times it can be so stressful but with the help of some school activities like sport activities and all other social activities can help to ease the school stress, even been involved in political activities but at times if too involved in those activities it may affect the academic activities.
Joining good organizations and NGOs can be great ways to meet new people and participate in giving back to the community. Even if it's quite of academic stuffs, it can go a long way in enhancing your CV/Resume.
Engaging in important discussion, been social and be instrumental in other people's success not minding who they are, getting involved in sporting activities and seminars be it within the school or in churches, and also belonging to organizations like Local government gatherings, etc.
Being social and engaging in social activities is one way to even build a career ahead. Moving from hostel to class back and forth can really diminish one's social circle and as they say no man can survive alone or as an island. Get out and engage yourself in something other than regular academics.
Thanks for the write up, it is tiring and boring when you don't leave this triangle because of concentrating on only one thing. Students need to take this idea of getting out and doing some creative and reeling theirselves from that tight schedule of academics
Yes this is what university students are supposed to do but instead they go to school and enter cult, they go clubing and do all sorts of thing that their parents didnt send them for.
The university needs to add more social activities to the schools program. The world has developed so also with the universities, so Nigeria university needs to add more activities to make university life more memorable
i think getting involved with a sport exercise is a good means of spending your free time , you can also take your self out sometimes.
Also sports like basketball and tennis are good sports exercise.
Thank you for this piece of information...freshers would likely benefit from your words of wisdom. But I'd like to point out that apart from sports you could also find other hobbies just anything relaxing and productive.
