Over the past week or so at Fairfield, we’ve had long stretches of rainy days, leaving many wondering what to do. So, here’s a list of some cozy rainy-day activities to participate in on campus. 

Catch up on some TV shows!: 

A few good ones to check out are “Gilmore Girls,” “Only Murders in the Building” and “Ted Lasso”. Not feeling a TV show? Try a movie—“You’ve Got Mail,” “Knives Out” and “Barbie” are all good choices. 

Organize a game night with friends:

See who’s best at Scrabble, Monopoly, Life or Clue. Even better, these items can be borrowed from our library—just make sure you look under their “Library of Things”. 

Get off campus:

Want to get off campus and go out and about? Head downtown and check out one of Fairfield’s many restaurants. If you’re not sure where to go, Molto, Colony Grill and Chef’s Table all have fantastic menus! Before you head back to campus, grab some frozen yogurt from 16 Handles. 

Head to the Community Theatre:

For another off-campus activity, head over to the Community Theatre. Throughout October, they’re showing some Halloween movies, including “Ghostbusters” and “Beetlejuice”.

Start a new book:

 It’s a good way to pass the time, and the library always has some good choices. Some of my favorites are “A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder” by Holly Jackson, “Before the Coffee Gets Cold” by Toshikazu Kawaguchi and “Plain Bad Heroines” by Emily M. Danforth. 

Check out Life@Fairfield:

Still not quite sure what to do? Check out Life@Fairfield. Rain or shine, they always have an activity to go to!

Even though our rainy week at Fairfield may be coming to an end with a forecast of sunshine and warm weather next week, I hope you’ll keep these in mind the next time you’re stuck inside for a rainy day.
