Student, Loma Linda University, Class of 2017,
The top 3 things students do for fun at Loma Linda University is community work, physical exercise, and listen and celebrate music. This institution is a christian-based private university. So musical celebrations are done quite frequently. It is primarily done with a religious theme. This works well with the high stress of college life because music provides an outlet to physical express your love and joy. Another physical outlet students have is exercising. Loma Linda University offers their students access to a large recreational facility. This facility has amenities such as basketball court, racket ball, as well as an olympic style pool. By having access to these different hobbies, I can relieve the built up stresses that come with everyday student life. Another cathartic opportunity that Loma Linda offers is community work. Loma Linda University believes in the healing ministry that was exemplified by Jesus Christ. They offer their students community service opportunities where they can provide assistance to people in need. They hospital on campus is one of the places where community work is offered.
There are many different ways people can have fun. Going to the movies, hanging out with friends, or going camping are a few examples how people generally experience fun. The students at Loma Linda University are different. Since it is a religious based institution, the students are encouraged to give back to their community as well as themselves. The university is known for pushing out a large amounts of health based professionals into the world. They understand this and they try and instill in the student the importance of giving. Being truly selfless and altruistic are foundational attributes that can enhance a future health care professional.
