    You get access to the gym at the civic center (part of your activities fee) and the Rec Center. You can play basketball or Raquet Ball at the Rec Center (also an out door court too.) Students get free admission to any event put on by MSU that's held at the civic center (plays, games, illusionist). This area is very outdoorsy. Lots of hunting, and fishing. One walking park in town, another right out of city limits. You're within a 30-40 minute drive of the river. About an hour from Lake Norfolk. Some shopping. Maurices, Rue21, JCPenny, Walmart, Walgreens. 2 Hour drive to springfield that has tons of shops and a mall. WP has two movie theatres ($8 regular admission) and one of them has rock climbing. Definitely fun! It's a quiet town that doesn't have a ton of fun things for people our age but make some friends and go explore the ozarks. That's a lot more fun than most other things I can think of.

    The civics center right off the campus has a weights gym, basketball court, and indoor pool! There is also a student center on campus that has some similar things as well as many rec rooms with pool tables and video games.
