    The beach! FAU is only about 3 miles away from the sand! There are good amount of college bars in town. Night life is never lacking with FAU's proximity to hot spots like Fort Lauderdale and Miami.

    There are so many clubs that you literary cannot decide what to do. Even if you don't want to be in a club or student organization, just go outside. There are wide pastures and lawns all over the place with people just playing soccer or football, studying, hanging out with their friends and enjoying a nice meal. Even the dorm building have activities you can do. Some have a recreation room with a pool table or a student lounge with a TV. Most have computer rooms where you can surf the Web.

    In terms of fun-filled activities for students, there are endless possibilities from contests between dorms to comedy shows and concerts, there is a fun activity that will suit everyone's interests. Homecoming week is one of the best weeks you will ever have during the semester and includes at least one activity on each day for 8 days including a concert, comedy show, the homecoming parade, and the homecoming football game.

    The Burrow student union is pretty nice with pool tables, couches and study areas. There are tennis courts and a pool. There is also a tennis complex in the Abacoa community. The Abacoa Town Center is across the street and the Donald Ross Village and Abacoa Plaza are within walking distance and have a Starbucks, a Publix, a CVS, a Walgreens and more restaurants and cafes. Remember this is a high end suburb and the restaurants and cafes are quite expensive.

    Florida Atlantic University is located near various shopping and restaurant districts, such as the Boca Mall and Mizner Park. The beach is just a ten-minute drive from the school.

    Beaches, cities, etc. West Palm Beach, Ft. Lauderdale, and Miami are all close, so there is plenty to do around the university. There are events on campus often, but I find many students get together to go into the cities on the weekends.
