    There isn't really much to do for dun besides TAPs, which are short for the Amherst Party, basically parties sponsored by the school once a month with a theme. Those are really great but besides that the only other ways to have fun are to join a sport or many of the other student activities on campus.

    Socials. It's a small town, but there's a mall nearby, some nice restaurants, North Hampton, Hadley etc. Sometimes concerts come in and that's nice too. Other than that, on campus, there's a campus center with ping pong, pool and games- but they're fun clubs and sports teams like Frisbee and intramurals.

    There is a mall not too far away, there are many coffee shops and book stores. There are also ultimate Frisbee teams that compete often.
