Student Responses to Review Topic: What To Do For Fun

    There is an ineffable amount of things to do for fun both on an off campus. On campus, there are a cappella concerts that go on every week; sometimes amateur guest bands visit the college and perform at night; the Alma Mater Productions (AMP) Organization host parties, formal dances, and shows for students; W&M's vast number of clubs often host their own performances such as stomp shows and cultural dances, games, and serve food. RA's often host school-wide events where they serve free food and hold games and raffles. However, if more relaxing pastimes sound more interesting, I encourage walking around Colonial Williamsburg (CW) and viewing their shops, restaurants, checking out the bookstore and it's cafe, and seeing the farmer's market on Saturdays. CW is especially beautiful during Christmas time when there are window displays and fireworks! Take a refreshing jog through the wood trails; suntan, nap, or hang with friends on the Sunken Gardens, and kayak on Lake Matoaka. Off campus, check out the Outlet Mall that has over 300 stores, visit the world's largest candle store, and explore the restaurants and shops along Richmond Road and Monticello. What makes it all better is that transportation is easy and free for students on the Red Line, Green Line, Blue Line, and Williamsburg Trolley.

    While Colonial Williamsburg may not be bumping all the time, there are more than enough events, activities, and student shenanigans to keep you happy.

    Clubs and not doing homework comes down to my version of fun. Joining a club is very important, and besides your dorm, clubs are very important for developing a social life outside of classes and your dorm. It's where you'll meet people and just hang out for fun, go places, eat together and do silly things.

    Hang out in Colonial Williamsburg and get free cider and ice cream! Take a carriage ride or have a picnic in the field in front of the governor's palace. On a warm day, go to Jamestown beach and get a tan. It's a beautiful escape from campus Go the the Dellies and bars on the weekends We aren't a big sports school, but going to football games and basketball games are still very fun. Track meets and gymnastic meets are always fun as well.

    Walk around Colonial Williamsburg. Go to events on campus. (There are usually a lot.) Hang out in the Sunken Garden (W&M's quad) on a warm day.

    There is something for everyone, from big frat parties to a capella concerts to shopping and Busch Gardens. If you want something to do, you can almost always find something within the Williamsburg area, and generally on-campus. There are enough clubs to satisfy everyone's needs, in addition to Greek life.
