Fight Interim Boredom

There’s no denying that Interim is one of the best parts of Wofford.

For a whole month, we get to take time off from academic classes and travel around the world, learn a new skill, or gain experience through an internship. Interim provides opportunities for learning outside a specific major or program and contributes to the wonderful Liberal Arts education that we will receive from Wofford.

However, most classes only meet for a couple hours a day, so many students find that they get bored much quicker than they expected.

There’s only so much Netflix you can watch, so we’ve put together a list of community events and things to do to beat Interim-boredom:
