You likely didn't think about it being boring when you thought of what college was like when you were in high school. However, there can be times when things really do just get a wee bit slow despite all the busyness and activity that takes place on a college campus. So what can you do to help pass the time? One of the best ways to find something exciting is to step outside and see what's going on in case you need something to do. Put comfy shoes on, grab your phone/iPod, and head outside to somewhere on campus you've never been before.  Don't feel like working out? Hitting the gym might be just the pick-up you need to get some energy refocus your priorities, and pass some time.  Chances are you aren't the only one looking for something to do in case things are a little slow on campus. Head to the gym, see who else is just hanging out, and start a pick-up game. You'll burn calories, meet some new folks, get some exercise, and pass the time -- while possibly also getting some bragging rights. Read something for fun. It may sound crazy given how much reading you do in college anyway, but think about it.

What to do if you are bored in college

Do homework in a new location. Alright, it admittedly sounds more boring than doing nothing, but would you rather have to do your homework when you're bored ... or when there are tons of fun, exciting things going on that you'll have to miss? Hang out in your residence hall lobby. Your residence hall lobby might seem like a kinda boring place that you just pass through on the way to your room every day.  But you can head down there, enjoy the extra space, perhaps watch a game on the TV, and meet some new people or hang out with ones you already know in case you time it right. See if there's a game on campus you can go watch. It doesn't have to be something you're used to (football, anyone?) for you to have a good time in case you are bored on campus. Watch a sports game on TV or the Internet. So, things on campus are a little slow and boring. Grab some friends, head to the dining hall, grab some snacks and drinks, and watch the game on TV or on your computer in your room. It can be a great way to spruce up an afternoon -- especially if the weather outside is far from ideal although it might not be as exciting as watching the game in person. Go to a kind of event you've never been to before. The chances of absolutelynothing going on on your campus at any given point in time are pretty slim. The problem might be, however, that the things that are going on just aren't particularly appealing to you. Go to a museum off campus. You're in college because you enjoy learning new things and living an intellectual life.
