Many students who go to college have trouble staying active and in shape. Short on money, not all students can afford gym memberships at a monthly rate. Luckily, if attending a college or university, the student can access facilities within the campus for little to no cost.

Almost all colleges offer gym facilities for students to workout and exercise. Along with gyms, colleges also have other facilities like pools, tracks, or courts. Students are free to use these facilities unless it is being occupied by an event. Facilities might have a one-time usage rate, a low cost entry fee, or even be completely free of charge.

If exercise is not appealing to the student, they can also join sport clubs, or intramural sports at their college. Most colleges offer a range of non contact sports as intramurals for students. These sports include, but are not limited to, basketball, ultimate frisbee, soccer and more. Intramural sports usually have an entry fee for joining.  Students can pay typically for the semester or an entire academic year. There are also free events hosted sporadically throughout the year for students who are not interested in playing full seasons.

Students have many resources on campus to use to stay active in their college life. Students may not be aware of what their schools offer for recreation on campus. Students can stay active and meet new people through activities they enjoy.
