    Many people at Messiah College create their own fun with groups of friends. With that said, Messiah is a very active campus. Around campus, you will notice many different sporting activities going on, as well as fun lawn games and hang-out sessions. On campus, there is also a movie theater that plays the newest movies that are in theaters as well. Various times throughout the week, there are many different band that come to campus for concerts. Messiah also arranges many dances and volunteer opportunities. Off campus, Harrisburg and Mechanicsburg are just a few minutes down the road and provide many fun activities as well as a large array of shopping places and restaurants.

    Get creative! The outdoors club has great trips including kayaking and canoeing down the creek on campus, caving, hiking, and climbing. The Student Activities Board also plans great dances, excursions, concerts, and coffeehouses. Sometimes it can feel like there is not much to do but hey, if it's nice out, get a tube and go tubing or if it's not, play murderer in the dark in one of the academic buildings at midnight!

    Well, if you like trees and/or the woods, you'll have plenty to do. Otherwise there's campus events, such as the under-attended B-Sides(Free Wednesday night concerts), a new disc golf course, and the classic relax and watch a movie in the room. Or if you're 21 the bars in Harrisburg are fun to go to, just don't let your RA find out.
