American college and university students who live away from their families are generally housed in dormitories at least for their first year. Men and women often live in the same building, though they may live on separate floors. Some dorms have a theme, like an international house, where students can learn about other cultures. In language houses, students try to avoid speaking their native language. The idea is to learn a different language. Colleges and universities often have many clubs that students can join. These include political, religious and service clubs, as well as groups for activities like singing, dancing, cooking, even learning how to play magic. Schools may also have internal sports clubs. These are for students who do not play for a school team but want organized sports with other students. And schools will often recognize a new club or activity if enough students are interested.
