After a long day of lectures and assignments, going out on the town is a great way to connect with your friends and blow off some steam.
But don’t confine yourself to the usual student restaurants and clubs – there’s a world of interesting things to do in your urban environment, some of which may have never occurred to you before. Check out group activity discount programmes online to see what’s available. Go on, try something new!
Let your inner geek out to play with this fun activity. No, you’re not too old, we promise. It may seem a bit silly at first, but you’ll probably laugh more than you’ve ever laughed before, and you may even enjoy indulging your competitive streak.
Everyone likes to sing. If someone denies this, you can bet they sing in the shower. Karaoke is so much fun, and a wonderful bonding experience, too. Sing all your favourite hits with your friends and enjoy an evening of hilarity.
Eat like a king (or queen)
Don’t have enough cash for a fancy restaurant or tapas bar? Don’t worry, if you look around, you can find some awesome deals and happy-hour specials at posh establishments – so you can go large without breaking the bank.
Be a cinephile
Movies can cost a lot, but most movie theatres offer discounted rates on one particular day of the week. Be a mallrat with your friends before and after the movie – malls are safe places to play at night, after all.
These shows are popping up everywhere these days, and South African comedians are stepping up to the plate. Try to find a show that has a line-up of different comics and you won’t be disappointed. You might want to avoid the open-mic nights, though…
Lastly, ask for student discounts wherever you go, and don’t forget your student card!
