With the stress of midterms looming over your head, the realization that spring break is over a month away, and the fact that Coachella tickets are sold out already, there’s not much to look forward to during winter quarter.

If you’ve spent most of your college years honing your pseudo-warrior skills with video games like “Call of Duty-Modern Warfare 2”, it’s time to crank it up a notch and head over to Camp Pendleton — for paintball, that is.
