November Activities

Partake in various activities this month with the following guide.

November is a month that allows for a multitude of fun monthly activities and makes the stress of the final full month of the fall semester feel easier as we all prepare for Thanksgiving.  

November is the perfect month to go outside, enjoy cooler weather and have a nice warm beverage as you’re doing homework and watching the leaves fall off the trees. November is the kind of month where the weather goes from warm to cold in a heartbeat, with fun social activities transitioning to being inside.   

With Thanksgiving being what November is known for, preparing for it can be fun and make the anticipation for the holiday that much more worth it. A fun inside activity for November that I recommend is to practice making apple pies for a Thanksgiving get together or to impress friends or family at functions.  

The month is also a good opportunity to get some holiday shopping done and take advantage of Cyber Monday and Black Friday deals to get some high-quality gifts for a good price and beat the last-minute shopping jitters.  

Being inside during November allows for the perfect opportunity to binge-watch all your favorite Thanksgiving specials from all your favorite shows. “Friendsgiving” is also a fun celebration to plan out with your friends and allows for some fun to be had with friends and great food and company to be enjoyed all around.  

Volunteering is a nice gesture for any month but especially in the month of November. It’s a month of self-reflection where people think about what they’re most thankful for. Access to food is something that we often take for granted, so volunteering at a soup kitchen is a good way to pass the time and give back to your community.  

November is a month that allows for the full enjoyment of fall before winter comes our way, with the seasonal coffee drinks and beautifully colored leaves. It allows for a nice, calming month outside the chaos of the classes and all the many assignments that they entail. Use the month to take a nice walk and enjoy the scenery, such as taking a hike in the Nature Study trail to experience the wonders that the month of November has to offer in terms of nature visuals.  

November is a month that allows for reflection on those we appreciate. Make sure to give those people the time of day and reassure them of their importance to you. It will make their days much better and having people like that in one’s life is an important aspect of living a grateful and fulfilling life.
