    Hang out with friends, go to sporting events and head to St. Louis! Also, the Hettenhausen Center for the Arts always has amazing shows that are free to students.

    Besides the clubs and teams, there's a nice little town to visit and we're 30 minutes away from st. Louise if your missing the big city feeling.

    Most people go out - the school is pretty close to St. Louis, where college students can get in to clubs on specific nights. But there are things to do on campus that can be pretty fun - bingo, movie nights, and comedy shows, among other things.

    Every week there is something on schedule. There's either religious services, athletic games, dorm activities, movies, shopping, and exercises. There's everything a college kid needs.

    Usually, you should check out our Center for Activities Board for extra activities for fun or the Hettenhauser Center for the Arts.

    McKendree always has something going on. In the Hettenhausen Center for the Arts (the Hett), there are performances and movies all the time, most of which are free or dirt cheap for students. Sporting events go on all year round, also cheap for students. Also, Campus Activities Board has concerts, comedians, game nights, movie nights, and other fun activities weekly (not to mention all of the other student organizations who plan activities--all free!). If you're not into campus life, we are about 30 minutes from downtown St. Louis, one of the few big cities left in the country with free attractions everywhere! The St. Louis Zoo, art museum, history museum, and some seats at the Muny (outdoor theater) are all free. Also, go up in the Arch for a small fee. St. Louis is a great city for broke college kids.

    There are all kinds of things to do for fun. The school has a Campus Activity Board also known as CAB and they pretty much come up with all kinds of activities such as: bingo, trivia, game day, free food give away, concerts, comedian shows, and much more. If you like sports you could also go to the games and support. Along with CAB there are other groups that students can join such as mentoring groups and sororities and fraternities
