    It's a small town so there is not much to do. If you have friends you WILL make the most of what you have. Wal-mart, parties, Campus events, and going out to surrounding cities will occupy your time.

    There is always something to do! Flag football, Greek Life, Going to the Gym, Golf, and Athletic Events are just a few to mention. Campus Activities Board is always doing something on campus whether it be build a bear workshop or making t-shirts. There are also outside movie nights weekly. A weekly campus wide email is sent out to let you know of all the events taking place that week!

    Zumba classes once a week are one of the most popular things to do on campus. It is a great way to exercise and have fun at the same. Also basketball and baseball games are very exciting to watch.

    There are a TON of organizations, Greek and Non-Greek, and there are all sorts of things to do on campus. Watch a sporting event, go work out, or even climb the rock wall. There's not much in Americus, but there is a theatre next to a VERY good pizza place! :)

    There's not much- there are Campus Activity Board planned activities, but they're usually not attended to by most students. Clubs sometimes host events, and there are frat parties often. The town has a movie theater that plays two movies at a time, and a stage theater that occasionally has productions going on. There is a game room with pool and table tennis. There are three or four restaurants in town that cater to students. That is about it, though. You'll have to get creative with some friends about what to do for fun.

    Here on the campus we have a lot of event happening throughout the semester. We have a game room located on campus for those who love playing games. You can simply hang out with friends around campus.

    One draw back of a small town is that there is little to do. However, there is a good bit to do in Albany which is about 30 minutes away from campus and an excellent shopping mall and lots to do in Columbus, about an hour from campus. Some students have said that there being limited things to do in Americus has sort of forced them to actually study and not blow it off.
