    You can play a varsity or intermural sport. King's Pointe, is a waterpark in walking distance from which is fun in the late spring. You can also hang out at the lake or go to a bar. There are plenty of events that the SAB hosts on campus like movie night.

    I am in the Graphic Design Club which i fun for me because that is what I am into. Also, here at BVU, there is a student led organization called SAB. They host many awesome events here including comedians, slam poetry nights, grocery bingo, midnight movies at the local theater, etc. The best part however is that it is all free.

    Not much of a school if you are looking for fun activities. It is mostly meant for people who are going strictly for academic reasons.

    There is always something going on. With tons of clubs to join and constant organized events, you will never be bored. Plus, there are many beaches and parks close to campus. Downtown is only a 10 minute walk away and for those who enjoy the night life there is Malarky's Bar.
