As a college student, it’s almost guaranteed that your plans for Friday night are to go out and party with friends. But maybe it’s cold and rainy, you’re tired or you just don’t feel like going out. What’s a collegiate to do? If this is the case, there are several cool alternatives that you can do by yourself or with friends to ensure that you still have a fun and relaxing night.
Movie marathon according to genre
Do you have a passion for classic horror movies? Have you been dying to watch the original “Bring It On” and every single ridiculous sequel? A weekend night can be the perfect time to remind yourself of what it is you love so much about your favorite movies. Simply pick a category and make the night into a movie-watching event, complete with popcorn, candy and cuddling up in bed or on the couch.
Apples to Apples
Drunken shenanigans don’t have to be the only way to get a laugh. “Apples to Apples” is continuously ranked as one of the most hilarious group games, so it’s a sure way to bond with friends and have perfectly sober fun.

Explore your area
Have you ever felt like you’ve lived somewhere for a while, yet barely know anything about it? Take the night as an opportunity to go sight seeing around campus or your town. Drive around with friends and stop at anything that looks interesting, from a weird statue to a restaurant with a silly name or sign. Make sure to take pictures to document your adventures.
Accept it- there are at least 10 items in your closet that you’re probably never going to wear again. Since your friends probably have the same issue, have everyone get together and bring at least five items each to swap with the others. Make the swap into an event by ordering pizza and having a late-night fashion show of all your new, free finds.
