    UREC is a great place to go for fun, you can exercise and make friends at the same time. Downtown is within a walking distance and there are many restaurants and places to hang out in. If you're a cats lover there's cat's cradle where you can pet and hang out with lots of cats.

    JMU is known for being a party school, which is true. But there are so many alternatives; comedy shows, concerts, pool hall on campus, great restaurants or discount movie theater to name some.

    Join a club, eat out, see a film, hear a band, PARTY. Seriously, that's what a lot of people do. If you want to ski, that's a pretty popular option in the winter, too.

    Hanging out with friends is usually the go-to here at JMU. You can go to parties if you are into that, but it's okay if you aren't! There's plenty of other things to do, too. For example, you can walk down town to Clemintine's a delicious restaurant. There's a place called Cat's Cradle where you can hang out with adoptable cats! Grafton-Stovall theatre and the planetarium are always playing cool movies, too. Of course, there is TDU, equip with a stage for student run shows/coffee houses, pool tables, an old school Juke Box.... and everything! You cannot run out of things to do.

    There is always something fun to do on campus. Whether going to the on campus movie theatre to hang out with friends for $3 or just hanging out playing pool. There is never a lack of things to do here.
