Student Responses to Review Topic: What To Do For Fun

    For fun, there is always something to do on campus except during study period and finals week. If you join a club or two and keep your eyes open for flyers finding something to do will be easy. Word of mouth always works too. As far as off-campus goes, Ithaca is one of those towns that would not exist if not for the universities that reside there, but there are a couple things you can do. In October, the city hosts a weekend-long apple festival where many local vendors come out to showcase many edible goodies for sale such as apple cider, funnel cake, caramel apples, and much more. The apple cider donuts are to die for. In February, you can warm up to Ithaca's Chili Festival. There are also tons of restaurants in Collegetown and the Commons that serve a diverse cuisine (this is how I first tried Indian food). If this isn't enough for you, there is a list of 161 things Every Cornellian Should do. If you start running out of stuff to do, refer to this list. http://cornellsun.com/blog/2005/02/27/big-red-ambition-161-things-every-cornellian-should-do/

    There are hundreds of clubs that you can join as a student at Cornell. If you're athletic, there are tons of club and intramural level sports to participate in. If that's not your thing, you can find activities ranging from engineering project teams to qudditch to squirrel watching. There are dance teams, community service organizations, musical groups, etc. Basically, if you can think of it, there's probably a club for it. If there isn't, you can get a group of friends together and make that club. The possibilities are endless. There is a club fair every fall so you can see what's available!

    Students at Cornell enjoy concerts, lectures, club and intramural sports, parties, and more. On-campus amenities include 2 climbing walls, several gyms, bowling, movies, and more. When the weather is nice, the Cornell Plantations feature hiking and gardens.

    Friday nights generally consist of: 1. Parties 2. Going to Wal-Mart 3. Studying more There isn't that much to do in Ithaca, to be honest. It's very different from any university within a few minutes walk/bike from a major city. Most fun activities will come from clubs or other student organizations, so look into those, if you are interested in any. The people are great, but the activities are limited.

    Ithaca is a fairly rural town but you should be able to find things to do on campus. During the fall and spring, many students attend local farmer's markets. There are also a number of sports teams students are welcome to support, including ice hockey, football and basketball. You could also consider hiking, canoeing, swimming, going to the gym, yoga, a movie, or a day in downtown Ithaca.

    There are clubs and groups for everything you could imagine, and if you happen to think of something they don't have, it's easy to start your own thing. From a cappella groups and varsity sports to squirrel club and Quidditch, there are tons of options available. Plus, there are great places to go and things to see in the area.
