top recreational activities in college?

<p>what are some activities you do (or plan to do)? </p>

<p>are there membership fees for the gym and tennis courts? i know at stanford you need to pay membership for their nice gym, and need to reserve courts beforehand =T</p>

<p>i know poker and ultimate frisbee are prevelant pasttimes, anything else?</p>

<p>i have the feeling some people will take up the very popular "club" sport of beer pong...</p>

<p>anyone else here an aspiring champion?</p>

<p>at my sister's school the gym is free. You should play badminton. It's fun.</p>

<p>is beer pong the one where you stack up a triangle of cups and try to throw a ball into the opponent's cups?-- allowing you to douse them with the water/beer-filled cup</p>

<p>or.. is it somethine else. hah</p>

<p>at my school the fee for the gym is already built into tuition or other fees somewhere</p>

<p>We have to pay for the gym... :(
Have you thought about trying a martial art? Colleges tend to have quite a few represented on campus, and it's a great way to get to know new people.</p>

<p>definitely =)! what do they have? judo, taekwon do, ..?</p>

<p>, AIM, and CC </p>

<p>Just to mention a few things not along the lines of clubs and sports.</p>

<p>smoke weed, are there a lot of pot smokers in UCLA or UCB?</p>

<p>umm UCB is very well known for its drugs..
as can be seen in the PR top 351 colleges book.. hah hah</p>

<p>beer pong is when you throw a ping pong ball into the other person's triangle of cups, and when you get it in they have to drink the cup of beer. Person with no more cups loses.</p>

Ultimate is good exercise, and very popular.
Many people do yoga and martial arts too.</p>

<p>I didn't know schools charged for their gym... interesting. Ours is free to students (meaning it's built into the other fees, but yea)</p>

<p>that's actually beirut you all are talking about. Beer pong involves putting cups at certain spots on a ping pong table and playing a game of ping pong, if a ball ever lands in a cup, the person on that side of the table drinks, also the loser of the game (for instance you play to 7 points) drinks their side of the table or some variation. Oh yeah, the cups get refilled, so yeah, u play to like 7, 11, 21, any usual ping pong final score.</p>

<p>Nah I like taps better.</p>

definitely =)! what do they have? judo, taekwon do, ..?


Well I'm one of the instructors of the taekwondo club in my college for next year... :)
Just using my school as an example, we have TKD, karate, kickboxing, kung fu, tai chi, ninjutsu, aikido, judo and Brazilian jiu-jitsu.</p>

<p>wow thats neat. whats the avg weekly hrs time commitment for joining something like that? (or a sport)</p>

<p>I would train 6-8 hours a week in TKD, plus 2 hours gym time. But I'm on my college's senior team for tournaments, (placed 2nd in Irish Intervarsities this year :) ) so I train more than most. I also had to put in a lot of training this year because of training for 1st dan black belt. </p>

<p>Some of the other clubs would only train 2 hours a week though.</p>

<p>Just to clarify, Cal doesn't have any more of a drung problem than any other school in its peer group.</p>

<p>well, in my uni, we have things going on every weekend, like concerts or movies or just parties in general.</p>

<p>beer pong and beirut are the same thing</p>

<p>Flippy cup & taps are the same thing</p>
