Student Responses to Review Topic: What To Do For Fun

    There are lots of things to do for fun both on and off campus. On campus, the quickest way to find fun things to do is get plugged-in at your residential college. The colleges are always having programs and activities. You can also join one of the many organizations and clubs on campus--find a group that fits you. I know personally that joining a campus ministry group was the best thing I could have done--and that includes having fun. We are always doing fun activities and trips with Christ Ambassadors. Off campus, the city of Murray does have fun things to do, such as indoor glow golf, a movie theater, multiple parks, more restaurants than we know what to do with, and, coming soon, bowling. In addition to these things, we do have some cool shopping places, such as Game Stop, Rue 21, and Payless Shoes. Plus, we are so near to Land Between the Lakes (LBL), Kentucky Lake, and Kentucky Dam, so outdoor fun is always available. Also, we have a seasonal Dairy Queen, and some of the most fun I've had was walking to DQ with my friends. Fun doesn't have to complicated or expensive!

    I'm sure there's plenty to do for fun, but I'm honestly not on campus a lot. There are university held events from club organizations. There's Friends of Anime (now known as Gaming, Anime, and Manga Alliance), the League of Legends group, Magic the Gathering group, and other various groups. Yearly, MSU has the zombie walk, where they walk from campus to the nearby Dairy Queen. We also have a bowling alley with billiards being redone. Nothing is quite as interesting as seeing prom dresses and suits bowl and playing pool.

    Murray State has many events on campus that students can go to. The Curris Center is a fun place to hang out with your friends. They often play movies for the students when they have the international cinema event.

    Students can join many club activities. Most of all, sports facility is pretty good. Students are able to swim in swimming pool inside the Wellness center, which is sports center for students, and to play basketball and also workout with decent facilities.

    At MSU activities are constantly going on. Over 100 organizations exist on campus including an extremely successful Greek life association. Intramural sports, talent shows, tie dye parties, black light golf, water balloon fights, and movie nights are just a few of the fun things to do on this campus.

    Go to the sporting events! Murray State Racer Basketball creates an electric environment in the CFSB Center. We've been ranked by ESPN as one of the Top 30 Basketball programs since 1980. Aside from sports, Murray has a bowling alley, a movie theater, local shopping, several restaurants, and is close to Kentucky Lake and the Land Between the Lakes. So if you want to get away, there is a large campground area on the lake that is absolutely beautiful. It's a small town environment, but it's close to a lot of things to do.
