    FGCU has a waterfront that allows students to lay out by the water and enjoy some sun, go paddle boarding, or water skiing. We also have tons of activities happening on, and off campus daily. Not to mention our awesome off campus FGCU adventure course where you can even go zip lining.

    If anyone ever tells you there's nothing to do, they're wrong. On campus we have intramural sports and sports clubs depending on what you're interested in. FGCU is very green so they're always trying to motivate kids to go outside. We have nature trails and we have a lake where you can go paddle boarding, kayaking, sailing, and you can reserve a time slot to go tubing or waterskiing (all for FREE). Around town we have movie theaters, mini golfing, restaurants, and bars that people go to and dance or drink. Also, Fort Myers has festivals that they have every year like ZombieCon around Halloween where you dress up as a zombie and walk around downtown while bands play and restaurants are open. I promise you there is always something to do.

    I personally am a member of a greek organization on campus at FGCU, Kappa Sigma. Getting involved on campus in something like that is definitely a great idea. It really is a lot of fun. You're always on campus meeting new people, or helping someone with their work. I would definitely recommend that. But for those who would rather not, which is perfectly fine there are plenty of other fun things to do. Like sports clubs and teams, there's several areas to play sports on campus as well as whatever it is you may like to do, just ask around. There's also a bunch of fun things to do off campus at any of the 3 shopping center's close by, everything from a movie to Bass Pro Shops to glow in-the-dark mini golf.

    The organization usually has concerts and fun competitions. FGCU is the only school with its own waterfront. Students can go skiing, kayaking, surfing and so much more. There is also basketball courts, tennis courts, volleyball, swimming pool, nature trail, and baseball field.

    When I first visited FGCU, I described it as both an excellent university and an amazing vacation spot. Many locations throughout the university offer a large amount of things to do in your spare time, including a man-made beach on a lake, a spa, and a field so that friends can enjoy themselves with a variety of sports activities.
