    There are so many fun activities that the Mount has planned for its students. When the school year kicks off, we have a huge campus-wide picnic (the President of the University closes all of campus for this huge community event), a Summer Tiki dance, and summer festival of games, rides on the Mount's Zip-line, and an annual Crab Feast tradition ($5 for all you can eat crabs!!) and other fun activities. During other weekends, there are movie nights (usually new movies that are not yet on DVD), Bingo nights (students usually line up an hour before to make sure they have a seat!), a Christmas Dance, and a Homecoming Dance. Campus Activities also plans events off campus attending the D.C. Cherry Blossom Festival, March for Life, Georgetown and Tysons Corner Shopping Shuttle and trips to New York City for the day (only $25!!). The Mount gives its students plenty of opportunities to have fun on or off campus - you will find many of students that wish they had more time just to do the activities!

    AMP, the activities management program, sets up activities to do on weekends. Like a trip to Baltimore's Inner Harbor, or a day trip to NYC, or going to Liberty Mountain and going inner tubing during the winter. There's also a good amount of dances throughout the year. The Social Justice office also has activities and trips. One of the favorite things to do around campus is going to 1808 for club night. And of course, there is always plenty of sports and games to go watch.

    The area surrounding the Mount is pretty sleepy, but the college itself offers activities and clubs.

    We have Amp, which organizes off campus activities all the time for little to no cost. We also have Crux that organized more active activities like rock climbing. canoeing etc...

    Frederick, MD is a very cute town with lots of little restaurants and shops. Additionally, Gettysburg, PA is about 15 minutes north of campus and has the same sort of environment.

    AMP is awesome, they have club nights a few times a month. There are a lot of activities, trips into Philly or DC. They have a good CRUX team for those that like outdoor activities. There is not a lot outside of the campus, however.

    There's a lot to do both on and off campus. Comedians and musicians come to campus almost every weekend, and students can participate in an acoustic battle for a cash prize. There are lots of sports games to go to, and the basketball games in particular are really fun. There are semi-formal dances at different parts of the year. New movies are also shown before they come out on DVD. The Mount is actually on a small mountain, so if you like hiking, you'll love the Mount. If you want to get off campus, you can visit the Elizabeth Anne Seton shrine in Emmitsburg or go to the Ott House for lunch or dinner (or drinks if you're over 21). Emmitsburg is pretty small, so there's not much to do there, but thankfully the Mount is 15-20 minutes from two bigger towns. Gettysburg, PA is a really cute town, the battlefields are huge and really beautiful, there are lots of restaurants, a movie theater, an outlets strip with good stores, and tons of Civil War reenactors and and ghost hunters. Frederick, MD is twenty minutes to the south, and downtown is also really nice. They have a lot of good restaurants and really good shops. The campus activities board also provides shuttles to DC, Philadelphia or New York a few times every semester. There are tons of other hiking spots, and several trips throughout the semester to do different outdoor activities, like hiking, rock climbing, and caving.

    For fun, get involved! If you are the type to just sit in your room and maybe attend an event here or there you won�t have fun here. There are so many clubs and organizations here and someone is always throwing an event. So don't be afraid to get involved because you make friends that way. But we have an Outdoors activity office that always has something going on. They will do white water rafting, rock climbing, caving, camping, etc. I personally did the zip line and that was beyond fun.
