    Students have to be creative with this one. You can always find something fun to do and that not only applies to millikin, but life in general. There's the game room, dorm lounges, movie nights with friends, UCB events, parties, etc!

    Decatur is a small town, but it packs a big punch. The school is minutes away from Downtown Decatur, which is a primarily small business square. There are various restaurants and boutiques. The campus often hosts free events to students: concerts, ice skating, game nights, movie nights, etc.to keep the students entertained. It's a great way to meet new people without traveling too far.

    There are constantly student-run events going on, as well as service opportunities (a requirement for freshman students and LLC residents).

    Decatur does not have a bustling social scene, if that's what your looking for. Downtown Decatur has some good eateries, and the town has some okay shopping. The lake offers retreat in the warmer months, but I don't believe there is a beach for swimming. I hear the Decatur zoo is a great way to spend a day.

    There is usually something going on on campus. For most shows and events students are given a free ticket. However, if you don't have a car, off campus fun is a bit difficult to come by.

    The campus tries to have things to do for the students like The Valentines day party and Comedy Show or like Ice Skating, bowling, and bingo. Also, the parties are usually about a block away from campus.

    There are several on-campus clubs that host activities (mostly free). There are also movie theaters, restaurants, and shops in downtown Decatur and nearby Forsyth.
