I'm a year out of college and during less busy semesters I did workout videos in between classes...just depended on how my classes were set up. But my last semester I had so many projects and homework + working evenings and weekends, I just no longer could fit in a workout. But I did live a few blocks away from the college so I got in a lot of walking and my job was fairly active. You really have to find sneaky ways to be active during that hectic time!

Our campus gym was open until 11pm, so it was really convenient to be able to grab a roommate who also had a SUPER hectic schedule and go workout at 9 or 10pm.

Intramural sports are great. You get to be active and meet new people.

Staying active can be hard for most people with busy schedules, and college students are no exception to that. With mountains of assignments, extracurriculars, social life, and balancing work and class time, it's easy to slip into unhealthy habits whether it's cheap, convenient or some combination of the two. But there are ways to fit in exercise and every little bit counts.
I commute to school every day and by the time I get to school the parking lot is packed. This was something I once complained over, but now I use it to my advantage by taking the farther spots and walking (this motivated me to get to school earlier and of course this is an added bonus when the weather's nice!) In between classes I'll either walk around the campus and I try to take the long way. And of course, the simplest thing is to always take the stairs.
What do you do to add in fitness to your crazy college schedules?
