It is necessary for college students to have fun on-campus. It helps them take a break from studies and actually helps them learn a lot more than the usual
textbooks. There are a million things one can conduct in college for the students to have their entertainment and also learn at the same time.
Few are listed below:
Workshops- Organize for workshops where students are given an opportunity to learn new and creative stuff and not the same old stuff which they have been learning for the past five years. Workshops for cooking, recycling waste for their everyday needs and much more would help gather more students’ interest and encourage them to think in a more creative way.
Talk session- Colleges should focus on more interesting talk sessions with well- known personalities who would give today’s generation a better picture of life ahead. Everyone knows hard work is the key to success. Students need to hear of things which are less spoken about and more which are of their interest.
Pet meet- Most of the students have their pets as their best friend. Why not arrange for a pet meet in college? Allowing everyone to bring their cuties to college and have few fun activities should push the students to indulge in the activities and play a major role and help them arrange meets for the future.
TEDx- TEDx is a talk session where most of the times celebrities are invited to
interact with the student and share their experience of life. Most of the colleges these days are organizing for TEDx and encouraging their students to attend such sessions for a better understanding.
