    There are always decent things to do on campus. The activities board is always coming up with interesting things for students. If you're from a larger city, it's not super unique or exciting, but it is definitely decent. You shouldn't ever be bored here if you don't want to be.

    The Campus Activities Board hosts many, many activities during the semester - from movie nights to concerts. However, if you're looking for more, there is plenty to chose from. We have about thirty campus organizations students can join. The movie theater and the mall are both within walking distance. And if you have transportation, there are also other places to go in Joplin, such as museums, skating rinks, and bowling alleys.

    The campus is slowly developing more and more things to do on campus. The intramural on campus are becoming more popular and the school will host events. Sports are a big thing at this school to whether it is basketball or football then there is usually a sport event over the weekend. The school does have an on campus movie theater which is free for students. They do play a lot of new movies so those are always exciting to do. The theater department is always hosting shows, so if you enjoy that type of thing you will have lots of choices throughout the year. They even host what are called Vagina Monologues which any student can be a part of.

    Joplin is a huge town with a variety of things to do. Southern always has student activities to participate in as well as our sports teams that you can watch. Tailgating is a great time always before the football games. The Joplin Mall is also somewhere you can hang out and pass time. They have all the name brand stores you would need. They also have an arcade and huge food court. Joplin is never a boring place and you can always find some way to pass time.

    There are many different clubs and organizations which offer activities weekly. Many campus associations try to plan events for every day of the week. If you don't want to get involved on campus, the town provides many fun outdoor activities such as golf/mini-golf, tennis, hiking trails, waterfalls, parks, and so on.
