Walking back from football or basketball games, they’ve caught the attention of many Towson students. Who are they? Some are in capes,  some with strange “weapons” and all with the audacity to practice their craft in broad daylight, next to the Center for the Arts.  The Towson LARP crew is interested in you, if you’re interested in them… Check out audio, video, and a story on the charismatic bunch here.

Bored at TU Week Seven: Social Events

In MCOM 341 on November 22, 2010 at 3:40 pm

One of the most important things to consider when bored is what you haven’t been doing. Chances are you’re bored because you’re sitting around, wishing you had something to do. Lets say you’ve already cleaned your room, watched most of your movies, read a book, and called your mom (mainly to ask for some money…). Have you thought about going out? Being social with people in your community, your school, your job- no matter where, being social has benefits that are numerous.

Lets say you’re bored because you have no one to do anything with. Well, if you go join a team, chances are you’ll not only have something to do but you’ll get to meet people who will link you to other activities you’re interested in. My sister joined a softball team with some friends and met a ton of new ones, including her current boyfriend! That’s just one team. Imagine going to a party… I was laughing with my friend the other day because we were saying once we graduate the real world and aren’t going to house parties anymore, how will we meet people? I have met a great deal of people chatting at parties, late night at Pizans, or taking the bus to Hopkins. There is so much socialization going on in the college atmosphere. I work at the information desk in the student union, and just sitting at that desk I have been introduced to so many people in the leadership scene at Towson.

So, if you’re bored, take a class, join a team, or just go to a party- socializing means meeting tons of people,having something to do with your time, and getting involved. Do it!
