Just because you’re a student, it doesn’t mean you have to go out every night of the week. You may feel obliged to go out on the town for a night out when there’s parties, student nights and good deals to be had, but what about having a night in? Staying in will not only be kind to your bank balance and your body, but you can also have some fun too! Here are just some of the things you and your friends can do if you’re staying in…
There’s no better way to unwind after a busy day than with a little exercise. Head to the on-site gym at The Curve and sweat it out on the cardio machines or pump some iron in the weights area. You’ll feel much better and more refreshed after working out, than you would after a night out!
Dig out the board games
Everything we seem to do these days is online. Not saying it’s a bad thing, but it can take away some of the fun. So, why not ditch the phones, laptops and the like for a couple of hours, grab your friends and go old school with some traditional board games? From Monopoly and Cluedo, to Pictionary and Scrabble, it’s a great way to keep you and your friends entertained for hours – whilst keeping those minds active too!
Come dine with me
You’ve probably seen the TV programme, but now it’s time to feature in your own series of Come Dine With Me! Get together with a group of friends and Host your very own dinner party. Whether you each take it in turns to cook a meal every night of the week, and then vote who’s was the best at the end of it, or you host one dinner party and each bring a different course, what can be better than a night of food and friends?
Challenge your friends
A bit of healthy competition never hurt anyone. And with a pool table, table tennis and air hockey tables available to play in the common areas at The Curve, it’s time to get your game head on. Compete with your friends and fellow residents to become champion of the tables!
Savour the moment
If staying in for the night doesn’t happen very often, you should simply savour the moment. Why have an agenda? Just take the evening as it comes. Pop down to the common room and see what’s going on. Catch up with friends, watch the latest TV series, get lost in a book, or merely sit back, relax and watch the world go by.
Catch up on some work
Of course, if you’re someone who can’t just sit back, and you like to constantly be doing something, you could always finish off that uni work? If you’ve got nothing else lined up for the evening, make the most of your free time now so you don’t have to do it at a later date when you really want to go out. After all, you don’t want to be the one rushing to get it finished the night before the deadline when all your friends are out partying.
Get an early night
And if all else fails, the best thing to do with your night in is to hit the sack and catch up on your sleep so you’re ready and raring to go for the rest of the week!
