    There are a wide range of clubs on campus to get involved in, especially for those willing to try something out of their comfort zone. There is a large majority of student in greek life as well, and plenty of on-campus jobs that will allow you to make money while attending school.

    There are campus activities almost every day and every night on weekends. You will never be bored at Clarkson between the campus activities or the many clubs available for you to join.

    There are campus activities on weekends for those who are not 21 and there are a few bars in town for those that are. daytime activities are more prevalent due to winter sports being easily accessible.

    Clarkson is 40 mins from the nearest city center or mall so the campus hosts events from comedians to bands that come on weekends for entertainment. Also Clarkson has greeklife so the various houses hold events on and off campus as well. Clarkson and SUNY Potsdam are only 3 blocks apart from each other so you can go to events at either college.

    I think I should have made it clear by now that there is not much to do here at Clarkson, but if you are someone that knows how to have a good time no matter where, you have no problem. What people usually do to get their minds of school work or just to chill is to go for parties, to go bowling, to go mountain climbing, to go camping, to go round the really small town (You can even do this twice but make sure with friends, always with friends), to join really awesome clubs that have awesome meetings, to go for the Clarkson events like the hockey game or the basketball game, to go ice skating in the Cheel Arena, or just to hang out with friends. College life is all about experience, so make sure you have as much experience as you can.

    Many people go out on the weekends and party. This isn't my scene so I stay in the dorms and do homework. There's very limited options other than party.

    There are a lot of clubs, intramural sports and fun things to do on campus. The village of Potsdam is very cute with some really good restaurants. The Adirondack mountains are very close for hiking, and it is a great area to go x-c skiing, sledding, kayaking and canoeing.
