Students and Capella are just like your average college students. We are all different and find different activities to do for fun. My friends and I usually go camping, create art and work with kids. My personal favorite is to combine all three. I love helping kids learn to work through things with art and camping.

Capella University is an online based university - Fun at Capella does not include parties, sporting events, and face to face interaction; however, fun can be interpenetrated in other ways. As an online student, a creative work environment is one way I am able to have a unique experience with my studies - I am not tied to a campus so I am able to have " fun" exploring a variety of learning environments. An environment that encourages creativity and focus. The second way I am able to enjoy this online campus better is with proper time management. Prioritizing life and work can easily give Capella an advantage with learning any time/ anywhere. The third and final way I am able to find excitement with my online learning experience is to have video chat with my fellow students and professors. This invites us to tap into the world of social media and build relationships.

It is an online university, so that really varies since there is no physical campus where we all can mingle. From my experience with reading over introductions though, it looks like most people enjoy spending time with their families, listening to good music either at home or at a concert and hiking. Not sure why, and I can't really blame them, but a lot of the students in my course track love to hike.

At Capella University we read articles, look at resources, and/or go to the movies. We do not have a great deal of downtime in the doctoral program. So often free time is spent meditating and trying to turn off our brains.

With this being an online setting, many of the 'fun' things are accomplished through social media. There are numerous groups which can be joined through the learner's login page, of iGuide. There are also Facebook pages which can be joined. These Facebook pages include not only current students, but also alumni. People can also create local get togethers in which they can share experiences and create support systems. Leaners are able to make friends and send messages to classmates, therefore building relationships which will help focus and support the students along the way.

Capella University is an online school thus arranging local activities that are fun can be a challenge. The school will offer local events where online students can meet with peers and faculty. These events are usually published on the website or students are notified through email. The events are held in different cities and usually a specific topic, which addresses the needs of students, is covered. One event provided students to give back to their community by volunteering. Another event covered the topic of how to use LinkedIn to conduct an effective job search. On a regular basis, students can connect to one another through the online community available through the schools website.

The University is an online school and with that they provide and strongly encourage students or learners as we are called to become involved in the many clubs they have and to engage with one another. Capella is also big into charity service. Students have several opportunities to earn points, which then you as the learn can delegate to which charities you want and how many of your points go to each. The University then takes those points and donates a dollar for every point assigned to a charity! It's a great way to give back to the community!

Capella is an online school so we do not always see eachother. Capella does offer ways to meet students who may be in your area or are alumni of the University. In January, there is a day of service where around the country, there are service projects we can do that are in or near the area you live. Also, there are online visual webinars a student can take on different community topics one can take. It can be on making peace, learning about a different culture, Q&A with a teacher and much more. Most of them are interactive as well. Another way Capella gives the students an opportunity for fun is updating the students on social activities in the area that can help with class or just personal fun. So although Capella is online, the staff do make sure the students get an interactive experience.

For me I'm a student and stay at home mother of a wonderful 17 month old (Baron). My days consist of studying and exploring the world with him. We love to go to one of our local lakes and walk along the shores looking at rocks and the animals. Also, we have a few chickens and we spend time feeding them and collecting their eggs. When I'm not spending time with Baron or studying I enjoy the occasional date night with my fiance (Baron's father) Justin. We like to support local businesses and have been touring the local breweries in our part of Northern California. Capella University, being an online format, provides its students with the freedom to explore their world while studying at a pace that is comfortable for them.
