Yes, they have a group for that.

This week we have been talking about involvement. While some groups are associated with an academic area or are service oriented, there are some groups that you can join just for fun.  Today I am going to tell you about 3 groups on campus that sound fun.

Color your world.  Do you like to paint?  If so you might be interested in H2O HUE.  This group is dedicated to watercolor painting, getting together to socialize and venturing out to see art.

Breathe in….breathe out…are you looking for ways to reduce stress?  Meditation is a great stress reliever and yes, there is a club for that.  The Meditation Club meets every Tuesday ay 5:15 in the Union and they suggest you bring a small pillow and wear comfortable clothes.

Run, swim, bike.  If you enjoy all of the above and like a little competition then you might be interested in joining the Mean Green Triathlon Team.  The club participates in several races in the spring.

These are just a few of the fun student groups that exist on campus.  While the meditation club might not be a resume builder, involvement doesn’t always need to be…just ask yourself…I am interested in it, would I have fun and would I enjoy meeting others who share my passion?

If you could form a student group on campus what would it be?  Post your comments and you could win in tomorrow’s drawing!

    I would totally join a board games club. We love playing monopoly at my house and I have introduced my neighbors to the joy of playing catchphrase!

    Great ideas Stephanie! YOU could be the President of the Board Game club!! I’m sure tons of people would find it fun! Clubs that cover a broad interest are always a great way to meet new and interesting people as well. I think an FBI club would awesome as well! I definitely would’ve joined during my undergrad, had it been available! 🙂 You have some really cool ideas!

    If they don’t already have one, i would like a club with people that come together with philosophical ideas and can make deep meanings and truth out of everyday life.

    I’d have a yoga (not just meditation) club or one that has lots and lots of service opportunities availible. I know they have service organizations here and I’m looking into them but they’re so not straightforward…

      Actually, i would think that would be pretty cool travers. If you’re into conspiracy theories and the like, look up a movie called Zetgeist. They have a website you can watch the movie on. http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-594683847743189197# Just copy that link. it goes over three parts. religion, 9/11, and the federal reserve. They talk about simlilarities and interpretations, not trying to disprove, all types of religions. they believe 9/11 was an inside job. They also believe our federal reserve was screwed up from the moment it was set up. It’s a great movie

        Willis Library is an anagram for “Y is Will Liar”
        and
        West Hall is an anagram for “The Walls”
        and
        when you say Kerr Hall fast it sounds like a grackle call.

        just sayin

        I love the Zeitgiest, Mark! I think that you should consider being a part of one of the many, many political groups on campus. I know that the International Socialist Organization has members who did a lot of focus on the 9/11 conspiracy and they also focus on the fed. The Free Thinkers Alliance is also a group who has ideals that are very in alignment with what you’re expressing.

    Stephanie…both of those sound like a great idea!

    There are over 300 organizations here at UNT and by visiting the student activity center in the Union you can learn about the different clubs that are available. You can also form your own anytime. Check out the website… http://www.unt.edu/sa/orgs/index.html
