Our group 3`s topic is how we spend our free time on campus. Free time is the empty time between classes. We do lots of things in that time. We divided it in six sections.

The first section is departments` student rooms. Natural sciences have 4 departments:physics, chemistry, biology, and ocean science. Each department has its own students` room. We usually go there in our free time and chat with seniors and students in the same year. Sometimes we do our homework or sleep in very noisy surroundings. We often play the gambling game “gostop”. When we lose, we should buy fruit juice or waffles for the winner.

The second section is food. We often go to restaurants at lunch time. But when we have little money, we ask our seniors for food or go to the cafeteria. Sometimes we go to street stalls and have simple food. For example hat-dogs, waffles, toast, and fruit juice.

The third section is Jung-Suk library. We often go there and study our majors. We have many reports to write, so we look for necessary data or books and write our reparts. Sometimes we fall a sleep there. We can use computers. When we have to study e-class, we sometimes go there.

The fourth section is playing. When exams are finished, we don`t go to the library anymore except for when we write reports.

We get together with people and go to the back gate of Inha university and decide what to do. We uaually go to singing rooms, PC rooms and billiard rooms and so on. Sometimes we play with so much zeal that we forget the time of class and then we run to the class room, gasping.

The fifth section is exercise. We sometimes go to the school`s sports field and do exercise. We usually play soccer, basketball and baseball. The natural sciences department had a field day in the first week of May . We played soccer, basketball and foot-baseball. So we exercised in our free time.

The sixth section is clubs. Most of us enjoy being a part of club. We go to club rooms and usually chat or learn something about the group. When the festival is upcoming we do lots of things in the free time between classes.

Reference : Group 3` experience.
