Bored? Quarantine Activities for college students

puzzle in process

By Alexa Low

If you’ve been on Facebook or other social media platforms lately, you’ll notice that people are getting pretty bored being cooped up in their homes during this shelter-in-place.

People are making memes about Netflix shows that are gaining popularity during this time as well as jokes about going to the pantry every hour as boredom brings about eating for fun.

I talked to a couple students as well as searched the internet to compile a list of activities that can be done at home to save students from boredom.
