    The college has a group which is responsible for bringing in big names in entertainment, from pop bands to slam poet duos. There are weekly speakers that come in from different colleges and universities to give science and English department talks each week. There are at least five things to do each week.

    Go through recruitment for sororities or fraternities. You can get into a lot of social events through them. There is shopping nearby as well as movie theaters. There is a lot to do if you are looking!

    Coe is great in the activities offered on campus. There are late night movies some Friday nights for free, there is a campus variety show every few weeks where you can do anything for five minutes and not be judged, and those are just the regular activities. Campus constantly has a variety of activities throughout the year to keep your weekends busy.

    Nothing. Cedar Rapids is an industrial town and is run-down, ghetto, very unsafe, and very boring. People have fun by drinking away the fact that they're in Cedar Rapids.

    There are a number of campus organizations who host events, and Coe tries to ensure there is something to do every weekend. For the most part, leisure time is spent hanging out with friends and, if a car is available, possibly the occasional trip to Iowa City. There are parties, which while generally unannounced occur frequently enough.

    There's lots to do at Coe, on weeknights and on weekends. On weekends there are lots of parties and that sort of thing, but SAC (the student activities committee) provides lots of other sober options as well. There are concerts, and poetry readings, and pumpkin carvings, and t shirt dying, free bowling, and lots of other events all free to Coe students.

    Coe is right next to the Cedar Rapids River, so dragonracing is always an option. Also Coe is located in the second largest city in Iowa, so laser tag, bowling, karaoke, and other fun activities are always available for you.

    There are so many events and clubs for this small college!!! I have three different orientations! I am already enrolled into two different clubs/programs, And there is a week or Orientation with fun, random activities. I love it! There is always something to do and one can always hit the city for entertainment because I heard there's a lot to do out there too.

    Cedar Rapids has a bunch of bars and some decent clubs. For those who are underage or don't like drinking, there are a number of volunteer organizations as well as leisure organizations (e.g. cycling, bowling) in town. Political activism is also pretty strong.
