Rest and Relaxation at IMSA

Living at IMSA, your days will generally be occupied with fierce problem sets, Sodexo wraps, 9 pm GAs in the Math Study Area, and bonding activities done by “10:30.” Between all of the busy events to occupy your time and sanity, IMSA students cannot help but cherish their moments of hiatus. With such a small window of time allotted during midday break, or in between meetings, it is important to make the most of it. Ranging from the largest to the smallest, here is a guide we’ve compiled, based on suggestions from the experts themselves: your classmates! Here’s an explanation of the best way to take advantage of your downtime.

  • Hang out with friends.
  • Talk to the RC in the office or set up a time to hang out and chat.
  • Play Ultimate Frisbee on Yare with some friends! Ultimate being the sport of choice due to IMSA’s vivid inability to play football.
  • Work out or lift weights.
  • Watch Grey’s Anatomy or Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D on Netflix. If you want to watch a movie, you could always ask certain classmates with questionably large hard drives full of questionably large movie libraries.
  • Have “Dance Parties” with your quad! Dance moves included but not limited to: The Robot, The Macarena, The Vimal, The Cat Daddy, The Dougie, The Running Man, The Worm, or anything that
  • Rap battles! Don’t have friends near you? Rapchat! There are some former StudCo Presidents with strong rap battle reputations.
  • Play Desperate Housewives of 02A.
  • Go into your RC’s apartment… with permission, hopefully.
  • Make weird food, such as teddy bear grahams as cereal. (Making “normal” food is also an option. Panini presses seem to be getting popular.)
  • Go hall hopping, but don’t skip 05 or 02!
  • Play Counterstrike, tough that’s probably not the best suggestion for pacifists…
  • “Binge on Teen Wolf.” The author didn’t mention whether they meant the TV show or the 1985 movie, but we guess the one with more of Daniel Sharman and Dylan O’Brien.
  • To quote another student: “I’m always busy…”
  • Blast music at the 05 slabs, but not too loud.
  • Do sit-ups. Like a lot of them. Like 300. How else are you going to impress the undergrad student at your SIR? Like, really?
  • Choreograph dances.
  • Draw stuff in the Multimedia lab in the IRC. If you really have a passion for it, join Feather, IMSA’s digital art and illustration club.
  • Play giant chess, but not with certain juniors who like to hit their opponents with the king.
  • Last but not least, our personal favorite: Pull out your “young mula baby” and get your “Chipotles.”

Regardless of how you choose to spend your time, IMSA is a diverse campus. If you have a little bit of time, be sure to get out there, explore, and have fun!
