    There are various things to do for fun on campus. There is a recreational fitness facility on campus called the Lerner Health & Wellness Center, in which students can work out in the Fitness Center, play basketball, soccer, badminton, squash, swim in pool, run track, etc. For campus nightlife, there are various Greek townhouses that provide parties and things to do for many students. Dorms are also areas in which students can create safe and healthy fun for themselves. Just off campus are bars and lounges such as McFaddens and Camelot for those older students who are eligible to access it. Beside partying, there is also great fun in taking a tour of nearby attractions such as the White House, Washington Monument, Lincoln Monument, National Mall, the Smithsonian Museum, Dupont Circle (many places to eat as well), and so on. The Woodling Zoo is also an area of fun. Prime areas such as U Street and Gallery Place-Chinatown are seen as the cultural centers of DC, where everything from restaurants to movie theaters to sports stadium (Verizon Center) are also available. Adams Morgan and Georgetown are also other prime areas in the city that provide fun for students outside of campus. DC nightlife is among the most varied in the country and many students never run of things to do for fun.

    It's DC! There are a million things to do within walking distance, and a billion more to find just a Metro ride away. GWU has all the best things about living in a city, mixed with all the great things about living on a college campus. There's so much to do and see, especially with the White House, the National Mall, and the Smithsonian Museums so close by.

    We are in DC, so there is always something fun to do. There are museums, restaurants, clubs, shopping, sport activities, and so many GW events. There is always something for students to do throughout the week and especially on the weekends.

    Anything. Literally, there is so much to do here. Just walking around campus is fun in and of itself. But you can also take a walk down to the monuments (Midnight Monument walks are absolutely amazing) or stroll through Georgetown. You can take a metro ride to any of the neighborhoods. There are museums to visit, tons of restaurants to enjoy, parks to visit.

    There are plenty of things to do which includes joining organizations, eating out. Since you are in DC, might as well visit the white house. and the surrounding museums. I suggest that you make a bucket list of things to do.
