    I volunteer twice a week on and off campus. I participate in school functions that happen throughout the year. I also enjoy the recreation center that is on campus.

    Abilene is a small town, but there are many things to do for fun, and Dallas is an hour and a half away. Easily you can do about anything in Abilene. The ACU campus has a new rec center built that you can keep in shape with every day. They offer classes, like Pilates and Zumba, and they have three pools. A Lap Pool, Lazy River and a normal pool. You will never be board at ACU.

    Hang out with friends, take part in intramural sports, hang out at the library (yes, studying and talking), several events are held throughout the year for students to take part in or just attend

    There's a few bars, hookah lounges, movies, mall, arcades, clubs to go to. But they're not anything to be hyped about. If you were to judge all these things on a scale from 1-10, it barely hits a five, and I'm being nice. There needs to be more things to do here, things worth spending my money on.

    Because ACU is on the opposite side of the loop we don't have much to do. But in Abilene period we have a place like Dave and busters called Prime Time.. They give discount to college kids on certain nights. Most people just go out to dinner for the weekend.

    Social clubs are surprisingly popular around here, we have 27 percent of the students pledge and that is a great way to make friends. Theater and choir are also great activities any student is able to participate in for fun. For every holiday, and even for random reasons, parties are thrown in all of the dorms and sometimes over campus as social events.

    Abilene does not have a ton of things to do, but there are a few that will keep you out of trouble. There is a drive in movie theater, a skating place, a bowling alley, a mall, a dance hall. A lot of students go to Guitars, a country bar and dance hall, on Thursday nights because college students get in free. Men in town also know that college girls will be there that night and so it can get a little uncomfortable. However, if you go with a group and dance with people you know, it can be a lot of fun. There is also a dance hall in Oplin, about 30 minutes outside of town, that mainly has older people and college kids and is also a lot of fun.

    It's true, Abilene is no Dallas, Fort Worth, or Austin. But ACU offers tons of things to get involved in for entertainment. There is always a sporting event in town (especially because of the two other colleges in town). There is a country dance hall, drive in movie, the Zoo, and the mall that we spent most of our time at. Abilene Lake is beautiful too, especially at sunset.
