    Intramurals are hella fun. Attend sporting events, theatre productions, general performances, get off campus - explore bars, shopping venues, etc. Get to know people at other campuses, network. Other campuses around Worcester may put on events of interest to you; it's also nice to get to know people outside of the HC bubble.

    Everyone on this campus is involved in at least one extra curricular so that takes up a lot of time with classwork. There are great restaurants in Worcester, though!

    The opportunities are endless. From the Hart Fitness Center to Women's Club Rugby there is an infinite amount of ways to spend your time. The social life off-campus is studded with parties not to mention that as a part of the Worcester Consortium, you have the opportunity to cruise the social scene of nearly a dozen colleges. Holy Cross has a ton of clubs and if you can't find one that suits you, you can start your own! From horse-back riding to sailing, there is always something to do. You can even grab the shuttle for a 50 minute ride into Providence RI or an hour ride to Boston MA. You and your friends will be overwhelmed but just how much is happening on and off campus.

    The Worcester community though at a first glance there not much to see has many good restaurants, and places where you can have fun.

    There are excursions to Boston, Providence and downtown regularly but there are other things to sign up for too. Entertainment comes to the campus too.

    Lots of activities available on campus! But if you ever want to leave, there are shuttles that take you to Worcester and Blackstone Valley shops. There are also shuttles on the weekend that can take to into Boston which is always fun. Mainly, I stay on campus and meet new people.

    There are always things to do on campus. On weekends there are comedy shows, movies, the Edge dance, and other events for freshmen sponsored by the Students for Responsible Choices. In addition there are weekend shuttles to nearby locations as well as into Boston and Providence. Whether you want to stay on campus or go off campus there is something to do and a means to get there.

    We have a club called CAB (Campus Activities Board), that creates the fun stuff that students can be part of for the year. From six flag trips, movie nights, comedian nights, the pub on campus, our Spring Concert and Spring Weekend (By the way insane and awesome weekend!) [although in the past two years police have been annoying and cracking down on off campus parties, the ones at houses because other people live in the neighborhood too and the houses have been so loud in recent years]. Also there is a nightlife in Worcester where alot of student go out on Thursdays and Fridays usually. The dorm parties are fun and depending on preference, the house parties off campus can be more fun but the police have been very serious about stopping it which really sucks. One saying at Holy Cross is that we students work hard during the week, and party even harder during the weekends.

    Holy Cross does a phenomenal job providing recreational activities on campus (comedy shows, on-campus club and pub, recreational center) and well as providing transportation to shopping centers and Boston. Party life is also very big on campus, so you will never be out of options for fun on the weekends.

    Each weekend, the College Activities Board (CAB) provides plenty of different activities as an alternative to the typical college weekend that everyone imagines. The college also provides transportation to Boston, Providence and various malls in Worcester, Auburn and Natick. There is plenty to do around campus as well as in the surrounding towns. There are plenty of academic and recreational clubs to partake in and AMAZING hills for sledding in the very snowy winters.
