    It is becoming a harder school to go out at if you aren't 21 since the cops have really been cracking down. On the bright side though there are really amazing people who attend ISU and you won't have any problem meeting people!

    Go to Uptown and just walk around! Starplex is pretty fun too! There's also a lot of social events going on as well around the town.

    Not including the countless amounts of events on campus such as the UpLate@State events, there is bowling, a pool hall, workout classes at the recreation center, and recreational sports to get involved in.

    Illinois State is located in a small town. However there are plenty of things to do for fun. Movies, bowling, restaurants, shopping, and museums are just a few to do for fun.

    ISU's one downfall is that they do not have many events scheduled for students on campus, and if they do then they aren't advertised very well. There was festival ISU which was fun, and Bill Cosby was there for parents weekend. But if you don't want to party, then you have to make your own fun, which luckily isn't a problem for my friends and I.

    The most fun I've had on campus is just meeting new people and hanging out with friends. There are always people out on the quad when the weather is good playing games. The activities that go on around campus will never leave you bored!

    They are many clubs to join and the school is even open to students starting their own club. Also theirs usually a party just about every weekend and you don't even have to know the people to go there. Mainly just connect with people who have the same interest and everything will be good.

    The obvious might be party. ISU is great for those and the parties really won't disappoint here. It seems like there's something to do either in a frat house or an apartment Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. If that's not quite your speed, the new football stadium was built just this year and the football games and tailgating are great. There are also open mic opportunities every Saturday night at Midnight where people do improv and poetry slams.
