    It can unfortunately get rather boring up at Bard. Many people end up resorting to drugs as a source of entertainment. However, if you look you will most likely find something to do. There are a few music venues where bands play (smog and root cellar). There are usually parties on the weekend, and for people who don't like parties there are lectures and performances. In the summer there is a waterfall which is really nice to swim in.

    Bard seems pretty chill and laid back. There are many student-run events, such as dances, movie nights, dinners. During the summer, Bard hosts a huge event called Bard Summerscape, in which many artists join those who are interested for performances, master classes, and dinner discussions. Don't be shocked by the many invites you may get for a dinner and a discussion instead of a dinner and a movie. Bard, according to The Onion, is in fact the best dinner party school in the country, so take note of that.

    SO much to do in the day, if you like being outside. There are no fraternities, so much of the night life happens at off-campus houses in the surrounding towns and at campus-sponsored events and concerts.

    There's nothing to do for fun. Smoking weed is pretty common though.

    The parties here are limited, you can either throw a party on your own or go and a great adventure to find one. The one thing that you can attend is smog which is also a hit and miss.

    While Bard College is a peaceful learning environment, it is also 600 acres of bursting excitement. There are events, performances, competitions, games, and dinner parties happening every day at Bard. The fabulous New York City is only a train ride away as well. Students often go to the city to experience the many different islands and cultures within the big apple, and then come back after the weekend ends to share their experiences.
