    Although Decorah, Iowa is a small town, Luther College makes it a point to have lots of events for students to go to. There are two concerts every semester with big artists and several other concerts with less-known artists. Luther believes every student should have the opportunity to be a part of any event they want without having to worry about finances being a problem, so they include a standard $100 fee at the beginning of the year that covers any extra performance costs that come to the college without it costing too much for the students. Without this, it would cost the students an average of $25 every time there is ANY performance at the college.

    When it's nice out, go out for a walk downtown or to Dunning Springs. Take advantage of the outdoor recreation opportunities emailed to you through your Luther email.

    For being a small school in a small town Luther does a great job creating activities on campus. From professional ballet to open mic night in the fast-food joint called Marty's. They even have a coordinator that schedules trips to pumpkins patches and ski resorts outside of campus.

    Luther is in a gorgeous valley with unending opportunities to explore nature. The school itself allows you to check out canoes and tents and the like for free if you chose. There's also a bowling alley and a movie theater within walking distance from the campus. There something going on almost every night on campus.

    Luther has some great outdoor activities like caving, swimming, hiking, and biking. The campus holds weekly trips to do many of these things, but it's just as easy to go explore the landscape on your own. One nice thing is that you can walk to the center of Decorah in about twenty minutes, and there are really good restaurants and shops on Water street. Luther also offers free rental of camping equipment so if you wanted to go on a weekend camping trip, that's supported by the campus!
