    There are many aspects of fun to have on campus at Hampden-Sydney College, for non-alcoholic fun, we have game nights at Venable Hall every friday of the month, free rental gear for camping, canoeing and sport of the like, and fishing in the surrounding lakes. There is much more to experience if you also get involved with certain organizations and clubs!

    Get involved in clubs, groups, and organizations early on. In the Fall semester, there's a football game every other weekend which is essentially center of activity in the area. Frat parties are fun, safe, and usually easy to get in to. The town also has a movie theater, a bowling alley, and Longwood University is pretty close by. The main fun on campus, however, comes from making connections and having friends to do things with. This school isn't for the socially faint of heart. Get out there early, and you'll always have something to do.

    For fun, you can go down to the TI and play ping pong, pool, or air hockey. Other times you can hang out in friends dorms and play video games. On the weekend, you can go party down at The Circle. If you want to get off campus, there is a bowling alley and a movie theater plus numerous places to eat in town. Since we are an all male school, you have to go to Longwood University which is down the street for the women.

    Outside of Fraternity Circle, there isn't really a lot to do. The fraternities have killer parities,especially during greek week. If one is looking for a club, we have tons; and if you find what you like, start one. Most if not all, are student organized,run, and lead. Farmville is the closest town and about 10 minutes away by car ride. If I haven't mentioned it before, bring a car. If one wants something to do, one usually has to go to richmond, lynchburg, or to other universities for nightlife.
