    Bidwell Park is great, there are plenty of places to swim, hike, bike or just walk around. During summer, there is a great farmer's market every week in downtown Chico. Downtown is usually a good area to hang around, plenty to do.

    I go to any of the dorms around me and socialize with whoever is there! Or go to the gym! There's a lot to do at the dorms, there's TV with cable, Ping Pong, board games, ect.

    Chico State is right next to downtown Chico so there are a ton of little shops and coffee houses and ice cream parlors to go hang out at. Chico also throws some fun programs throughout the year and they have a lot of guest speakers come onto campus. Also, most of Chico State students live within a 5 mile radius of the campus so it's easy to go hang out with your friends whenever.

    Believe it or not there are other fun things to do here besides party. But the party scene is really fun and what most people do on the weekends. If that isn't for you there are other activities and events you can be apart of. The school likes to put on events like movie nights, DIY crafts, and fair type activities. There's also the farmers market where you can get great food and free samples and the Senator theater downtown that normally hosts concerts and events. And you can't forget to check out Bidwell park which has really cool hiking spots like Monkey face. Then a popular thing to do when it's hot is to swim or tan at one mile. If you have a car you can drive to the mall or movie theater also which isn't too far from you.

    There are so many things to do in Chico. A lot of students ride their bike around town and there are tons of bike paths to go on and ride your bike for miles. There is also Bidwell park which is a beautiful place to walk, run, take your dog on a walk, or ride your bike. Downtown chico is a block away from campus and there are events going on almost every weekend. Floating down the river is the thing to do over summer; it is nice and relaxing.

    Besides partying there isn't much to do. I try and go to Bidwell and hike and explore but that's about it. There isn't much of a mall or anything in chico.

    Nice thing about Chico State is that it is a bus ride to anywhere. If you have a car you have Clear Lake for concerts. Plenty of events on campus to take part in.

    If my review hasn't convinced you yet, well let me say it again, there is so many things you can do here to have fun, walk a few minutes to Downtown Chico and grab some lunch with friends in between classes. When the weekend comes around go hiking at upper Bidwell, the sights are amazing. during the hot summer days, go to the well known Bear Hole in upper Bidwell and go swimming or jump off huge rocks into the water if your really adventurous. Not only that but there are always fun events, like the National YoYo competition, the Christmas tree lighting, and even concerts!
