So spring is officially here!! That excites me greatly because Spring is my favorite season second to f
all. The weather is warmer, the flowers are blooming, the grass is greener, and overall the outside environment just becomes so happy. Another reason spring time excites me is because after spending most of my time indoors in efforts to stay out of the cold, I have cabin fever and I am ready to get OUTSIDE! Campus life seems to pick up a bit more as well! There are so many things to do!! This weekend one of the Sororities hosted a really fun event called Bump it like Beckham to raise money and awareness for abuse. I participated in this event and it was a really fun just spending time outside and getting to know people in other groups and organizations. We got in huge inflatable balls and played soccer. I spent most of my time rolling around on the field because people kept bumping into me and I had a hard time staying on my feet. It was definitely a blast! Intramural sports are always a fun way to get involved on campus in the Spring. I hate working out. but with all the stress that comes with college exercising is necessary to stay healthy and to relieve some of that stress. Last spring I played on an intramural softball team. We called ourselves the bench warmers. It was loads of fun and even though the further you get into your spring semester the heavy the school work load gets, I was able to use practice times and game times as a study break. Since we are only an hour away from the beach, the college group at my church likes to take short worship beach retreats. It is such a refreshing time to relax and have fun in the sun. Another fun campus event that comes every spring is Oozeball. This is a mud volley ball tournament and it is easily one of my most favorite things to do on campus in the spring. I can not wait to play again this year!!
Like I said before exercise is a necessity in college so I try to find fun ways to get moving. What is more fun than running a 5k while getting colored powder thrown all over you? You can always find a group or organization hosting a color run or some sort of 5k on campus to raise awareness and money for different charities and fundraisers. With all of the fun things offered on campus during the spring, you are sure to find something to get involved with and have fun!
