    Minnesota State University, Mankato has a lot of events that you can attend. But if it's outside campus activities you're talking about, how about shopping at the River Hills Mall? Or maybe attending one of the many art displays in the city. In the winter time, Mankato puts on a beautiful lights show in Sibley Park. If these don't sound exciting, there are so much more you can do around the city.

    There are many events that are planned and many organizations to join. There will always be events to attend. The people there are awesome so hanging out with friends is fun as well.

    The Student Union is a great place to just hang out & find out if there's anything to do around Mankato, which there always is.

    Join clubs! They're a great way of meeting new people. Same with joining your community council, if you decide to live in the dorms. There's tons to do on campus, you just have to find them.

    Basically, this school is a party school! Other things you can do for fun are intramurals, mav after dark and watching the football and volley ball game. Rock climbing and gyming are also great.

    Right on campus there are so many opportunities to stay busy, non-academically. Volleyball courts, intramural sports, the gym, swimming pool, racquetball courts, billiards room, bowling alley, and karaoke bar all on campus! If none of those interest you, there is an ice skating rink that isn't too far from campus, and the you can ride the bus for free to the mall to see a movie or go shopping. Other kids are always up for meeting new people, and there are lots of movie nights that are open to everyone. We all cram in someone's living room or dorm and get to know each other over a marathon of the best movies. It's a blast!
