College is a time to explore interests, and that isn't just limited to classes.
The University of Colorado offers hundreds of clubs for students covering all sorts of activities, hobbies and topics, from the Advertising Club to the Zen Society.
CU provides a complete list of student activity groups on its Center For Student Involvement website, but we've taken the liberty of picking out a few of the more unique clubs students can join this semester.
Bummed the last "Hunger Games" movie is already out? Well you can learn to be just like Katniss at CU. The club accepts people of all skill levels and provides equipment for those who don't have their own bows and arrows.
The group organizes biweekly trips to the Empty Quiver Archery in Broomfield to hone members' craft and socialize with other archery enthusiasts. For more information, visit the club's Facebook page.
Don't know much about the sports of hurling and gaelic football? Want to learn more? Well, CU has a club just for you.
The Gaelic Club holds weekly practices with the goal of sending teams to compete in the NCGAA National Tournament over Memorial Day.
But it's not just about learning the sports. The club also teaches its members about the history and culture behind Irish sports. For more information, visit the club's Facebook page.
You don't always need the help of the local dispensaries to get high in Boulder.
The Flying Club at CU is for pilots and aviation enthusiasts, but you don't need to be a licensed pilot to join. In fact, the club will help you get your pilots license if you want one.
The group has done flyouts, in which members fly several planes to take the group to another city for breakfast or lunch before flying back into Boulder. Every year the club also organizes a trip to the local air traffic control facility.
Well now that you've learned how to fly a plane, you can learn how to jump out of one.
The Skydiving Club looks to teach its members how to skydive and indoor skydive. The group organizes at least one annual jump in the Front Range and trips to iFly Denver in Lone Tree for indoor skydiving in a vertical wind tunnel.
In addition, the club meets monthly to share information and share stories and experiences from past jumps.
Humans vs. Zombies
You can probably figure out what this group does, assuming your brain hasn't been eaten yet.
Humans vs. Zombies is an apocalypse-themed game of tag featuring socks and Nerf guns, and the club hosts several events every semester.
The group says the purpose of the game is to promote student social activity, encouraging students to work together, exercise and get to know each other.
Plus, you know, shooting Zombies with Nerf guns. For more information visit the club's Facebook page.
