What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs,

blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and

format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

In college, your main focus likely is to get an education, but the experience isn’t all about work. When you’re not in class or studying, you’ll have lots of time to spend on doing fun things with your friends. You can hang out both on and off campus whenever you like, so you have tons of options when it comes to finding fun things to do with your friends. You can watch movies, share meals, go to events, and do so much more. 

Finding things to do for fun is almost just as valuable as focusing on your classes when you’re in college. You don’t want to miss out on some of the most fun parts of college by hyperfocusing on your work at all times. You need plenty of time to wind down and spend some time with people who like and care about you. 

You can make lots of awesome memories with your friends when you use everything you have at your disposal in your new city. Take advantage of everything that your school and your city has to offer, and you will have a great college experience! We have compiled a list of fun things you can do with your friends while you’re at college. If you need some ideas, this should hopefully help!

Have Movie Night

Watching movies with your friends is always a fun experience. You can make it into something that is even more fun when you make a regular event of it. You can choose the best location, prepare snacks, and set a comfortable atmosphere. You may find that a dorm room is your ideal location, or maybe your campus has a screen room that you can use. 

When having a movie night in your dorm room, it is easy to set the right mood. You can set a movie theater environment by keeping the lights dim and the sound of the movie loud. Make sure to have enough pillows and blankets so that everyone can feel cozy and comfortable. 

The food is one of the most important parts of movie night. Having an arsenal of snacks is something that can make watching a movie even more enjoyable. You can have traditional movie snacks like popcorn and candy, though what food you can have isn’t restricted in this kind of environment. You can order a pizza or even pick up food from nearby restaurants or the dining hall. You can make something if you choose to, and make sure to have drinks and desserts along with everything else. 

Explore Your City

Learn what you can about the city you will be spending the next few years in. 

Now that you’ll be living in a whole new city, it’s worth it to get to know your surroundings. Simply walking around the city and seeing what you can find can be fun when you’re new to the place. You can discover places you want to spend time in like restaurants, parks, theaters, and so much more. You can learn about the best places to go during the day, the night, or whenever you need some fresh air. 

Whether you live in a city that is big or small, there is likely a lot that you can discover about it. Every place has unique features that the locals get to enjoy on the regular. Don’t just spend all your time on campus when you’re free, get to know your city and enjoy everything that your college has to offer, including its location. You can find out some of the best places to visit by asking students who have been there longer about the places they like to go. Making cool discoveries with friends is a great way to spend time on and off campus.

See A Campus Theater Show 

A campus show is great local entertainment. 

If your campus has a theater, it is definitely worth it to catch a show sometime. Some of your classmates are working hard all year to bring awesome shows to the student body, so why not go see what they’ve created! Campus plays can be original or based on some of many popular stories. Go on a night where the story being performed interests everyone in your friend group and then sit back and enjoy the show.  

If there are film students at your school who set up film viewings from time to time, that would also be a good show to attend. You and your friends will have a lot of fun seeing the types of short films that your classmates are creating. 

Cook A Meal Together

Sharing meals can bring people closer together.

Eating meals together is one enjoyable thing you can do with your friends, but cooking together can make the experience even more fun. You and your friends can establish any type of cooking tradition that works best for all of you. If any of you has a functioning kitchen, that would be the best place to meet up. You can all pitch in meal ideas and then go grocery shopping together. Cooking as a group will also get your meals done faster than if one person made it all by themselves. You can designate different duties to different people in the group to make the process run smoothly. Having basic kitchen appliances is also important. 

This is something you can plan to do weekly, monthly, or just whenever you all have time. It's always nice to have a home cooked meal with people you care about. Even though your family isn’t around, your friends are your new family while you’re at college. It will only bring you closer and make more great memories when you share meals together. It will also give you something to look forward to from time to time. And even if none of your friends live in a place with a fully functioning kitchen, there are many recipes online that you can easily make in a dorm room. Even if you just have a microwave, you can get some good cooking done in your dorm. 

See A Campus Game

You will really feel like you are a part of something big when you are celebrating your team’s moves with the crowd. This is also your chance to show off your school spirit by wearing your school’s colors or snuggling up with a decorative college blanket!
