    There are multiple student lead clubs on campus. Everything from Anime Club to Movie Night Club, there's something for everyone. And if not you can start your own club! And it's on the same campus as the MIA.

    Students are always gathering somewhere. Whether it be outside, in the college center, or in the auditoriums for movies. If you walk around campus, you'll inevitably find something to do.

    There a number of clubs to join on campus-from Zombie Appreciation Club, Gay + Club, Animation Club, to Recess Club, Heckle the Movie Club...the list goes on and on! The school puts on a variety of events as well. They've had movie nights, a petting zoo, trips to an apple orchard, art exhibit openings, etc. There is plenty to do! If you want to walk downtown, that is also possible...there's plenty of places to go eat! Also, you can take the bus to the Light Rail to go the MOA.

    MCAD holds weekly events and student-run clubs that are fun and more often than not have free snacks. In fact, I don't remember a week passing that didn't have at least four events going on! There are lots of parties, of course, and so much to do in the cities. It's difficult to get bored.

    The Art Institute and Walker Art Center are very near. Downtown Minneapolis is just a mile away.

    There are a million clubs, and if it doesn't exist (unlikely) you can start one. Housing organizes all sorts of fun parties, and there's a TV with cable in the workout room. Everyone has a personal computer. There's no shortage of fun things you can do. You just have to be careful and get the work done first.

    There are plenty of things to do for fun, depending on what you want to do. I would generally suggest searching for places within Minneapolis that interest you and go to or go do them. However MCAD does have an extensive list of clubs and activities you can participate in, either on or off campus.

    I hang out in the college center a lot. It's an art school so people are always working on something cool. It's nice to see what other people are working on.

    There are many events and guest speakers that come to MCAD. There are many clubs and other fun activities as well. If nothing is going on at MCAD, downtown Minneapolis is a few blocks away with many venues and clubs to go to.
