The main activity that students do for fun is attend athletic games. It is very important to support your school's athletic events, because it shows how much pride we have in our school and our athletic students. Students also like to attend social gatherings hosted by student clubs. Being apart of a student club allows me to connect with other students when we host socials, and make lifelong friendships. Students also partake in school dances, and our most popular one is homecoming. It gives students a chance to let loose and have fun!

Since Colorado Springs is a place well known for having active, healthy residents, many of the students like to workout. A lot of the students take fitness very seriously and try to make use of our gym as best as they can. We also take advantage of our beautiful mountains by going hiking when it is warm enough outside. There are trails that we can take right from our school. During winter time, students visit ski resorts to snowboard or ski. There are a lot of students who are involved in intramural sports as well and some just play on the lawn with a group of friends.

We do a lot of floor activities as well as school ones. We attend sporting events and hold pep rallys. We also have a lot of different clubs to join. If you are interested in joining a sport but not be on a team we have intermural and club sports. At the gym we have many different physical activities to keep you in shape. The Frats and Sororities also have many days where they hold activities.

There are so many things, but I can list my favorites. 1. Hiking; there are many hikes around the school that most can participate in. 2. Biking; you cannot travel around town without seeing bicyclists on the road. 3. Concert Halls; there are concert halls around town that always have gigs. Black Sheep and Rawkus are just two examples.

When students have free time during the semester, they play zorb ball soccer, hang out at the pool, and ski/snowboard. Zorb ball soccer is where you get inside of a giant elastic ball and run into people on the other team trying to kick the soccer ball in the goal. During the Summer UCCS has multiple pools that people tan and relax at. And during the Winter there are plenty of ski resorts within a 2-hour drive to shred some powder on!

As an adult student, this is hard for me. But I still like to have fun! So, I will share how the ADULT students have fun at UCCS. We LOVE to hike, we like to bike and we like to chat and have coffee with friends. As one gets older, the fun gets easier to have, as a moment of peace means so much more when you live in the world of busy and constant activity.

The top three things that students do are games, sports, and hikes. Games like water canoe (where you try to sink the other groups canoe in the pool with buckets of water) and soccer ( for everyone - not just people on the soccer team) are very popular. There are also many sports both for Division 2 athletes and for people who have never played a sport in their life. Last is hiking. We are right next to some big mountains (including some 14er's) and hiking on weekends is extremely popular (when it is not snowing!). We do a lot more then just those three but those are a few big activities that students do at UCCS for fun.

Students that attend the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs are very fortunate because there is always fun to be had. First off, we happen to be located in one of the most scenic cities of Colorado, Colorado Springs, with Pikes Peake as our view. That brings me to the first fun (and free, thank goodness) activity UCCS students enjoy, hiking. Wether you want to take down a 14er, hike Pulpit Rock or even tackle the feared Incline, UCCS students have a large selection of ACTIVE(ities). Colorado Springs is also the largest city in Colorado, which has created many different subcultures to explore. UCCS students can take the short drive to Manitou Springs and literally enter into a completely different environment. Manitou Springs is a small town filled with ma and pa stores ranging from apothecaries to novelty candy shops. Lined up and down with tourists, tarot card readers, and hipsters on every corner (brave and adventurous) UCCS students are able to enjoy a new culture from the comfort of their backyards. The third, and not final, fun-tivity UCCS students enjoy is the Air Force Academy air shows that happen seasonly all from the view of almost every building located on campus. The air force Academy is only two exits north of campus, and with it brings many activities for our UCCS students. Wether you are visiting the Air Force chapel, the number 3 wedding destination for the Western half of America, attending an air force hockey game or watching the Thunder Birds when they make an appearance, students are spoiled with its close proximity. There is many more fun adventures in Colorado Springs, and UCCS students take full advantage of our awesome surroundings.

If you were to take a stroll on the campus of UCCS, you would see many of the students on a warm, sunny day either relaxing on the Campus lawn trying to get their tan on, skating up and down the sidewalks feeling the wind through their hair, or simply just throwing something around like a frisbee, football, volleyball, whatever. Simply put, if you can do it outside, chances are we're already on top of it.

At the University of Colorado Colorado Springs, there are lots of outdoor opportunities for activities. Visiting the Garden of the Gods is a great activity and really simple for students because it is only a couple minutes from campus. Also, on the weekends it's fun to head to the mountains and ski. Lastly, on campus it's fun to play rooftop soccer on the rooftop courts.

The top three things students do for fun is play intramural sports, hang out at Cyldes, and participate in the hundreds of clubs and organizations at UCCS. Intramural sports are an awesome way to stay active and compete with friends. I personally played on a soccer team. Cylde's is our on campus sports grill. They have many events and is always a great place to gather with friends for some good conversation. UCCS offers a variety of clubs and organizations. I personally am involved in Sigma Delta Pi and the Spanish Circle. Both clubs sponsor events like foreign films or international speakers.

Three things that are fun at UCCS are there are video game parties. For instance March 17, there is a Mario party. There is an area that you can play pool, watch TV and relax.

The University of Colorado is a fantastic community for outdoor activities. With its location up on the hills, the campus has easy access to trails and outdoor life. We are also close to Garden of the Gods park which allows students to hike, rock climb, and bike. Students also are active fans for our basketball mens and women's team. Attending movie nights on campus are also fun and interactive ways for people to enjoy the latest movies and shows.
