All students are different. But many like to spend their free time doing things like shopping, going to parties, being with friends, using technology for games or other online activities, social networking, texting, watching movies, reading and going to the beach or park.

Students are also spending an increasing amount of their free time in structured extracurricular activities such as arts and sports.
