    The yearly VEISHA festival seems like it a blast to go to. I like that there are also a lot of things to do on and around campus, so it does not feel like you are trapped.

    Your imagination is the limit. Though mostly people go to the bars. There are plenty of campus activities too, if you're not one for drinking. Bowling, laser tag, pool, concerts, and more are also available.

    Hang out with friends; play catch, play video games, have lengthy debates, and countless other stuff. Depending on your classes, they could be fun too.

    The list of student organizations is extremely long it reaches from DubH, the awesome hip-hop club to the origami club. If you want to do sports with other, perform acting, singing or dancing or get involved in something more academically, Iowa State has it. You will never be bored once you join some clubs and make friends. In addition to that there are always events put up all over campus. You would be hard pressed to find a nigh where there is nothing going on. ( okay, maybe dead week when everybody is busy.) But there is not just the campus but also Ames the sweet college town, who usually loves its students. There is a farmers market to which you can go to, different parks to relax or skate board. You can go out and eat different ethnic food with your friends or even something fancy with your significant other. There are so many options to have fun. Just go out and do them.

    They canceled VEISHA, so if you're one of the hundreds of students that attend Iowa State just to party for this week, look elsewhere. There are a lot of bars, though they have been known to be scummy. The town itself SUCKS and only leaves you with bowling and laser tag. Other than that, might as well catch a movie or do your homework. Even the mall here only has like ten stores.

    ISU has so many different clubs and organizations that you can get involved in. Also we have two great workout facilities so I would say you should also go there.
