    We're in Bloomington Normal - which is a pretty good town. We have a couple concert venues and plenty of places to eat. Also ISU is about a mile away so there are college students everywhere.

    Go out and mingle. There are events every single day going on. You get a weekly email telling you what is going to happen, what time, and where. I think this is really wonderful because you not only learn outside of the classroom, but you connect with other people. Plus, we usually have crazy fun filled events by the end of the week. An incredible example: Many of us went to go watch the new hunger games movie catching fire. Sadly, I missed it. It was free, and all you had to do was sign up. I thought that was one huge incredible event, along with the 3OH3! concert that I went to see in our gym.

    Illinois Wesleyan makes a point of having activities not only over the weekends but during the week as well. Students can always find a movie screening, a dance, a comedian, a concert or talent show, and even game shows. If IWU faculty and staff is not in charge of some event, there is always a registered student organization providing entertainment for the student body. There are cookouts and student concerts, athletic activities, and volunteer opportunities. The activities are endless at Wesleyan, students will sometimes have to choose which activities to attend!

    The campus is located within a walkable distance from Downtown Bloomington and Uptown Normal, which offer plenty of shops to peruse and fun places to grab a bite to eat or some coffee. On campus, there is always something going on in the Hansen Center so students can have a movie night together, enjoy student artwork, or participate in fun game shows and contests.

    There is not too much to do for fun in town. Without a car, there is nothing to do besides for walking outdoors. If you have a car, you can drive to go bowling, to the movies, to the mall, etc.

    There are plenty of things that the small campus offers in Bloomington, but also a large school life atmosphere 5 minutes down the road in Normal at Illinois State.

    The Hansen Student Center puts on activities every single weekend. Whether it's a band, entertainer, a movie night or an activity night for the entire school, there it always something to do. Bloomington has a TON of restaurants to eat at and the public transportation system gets you around on $1 so there are always places to explore.
