    Their are many geek things to do for fun. Their is a game room on campus with pool tables, Foosball, and video game consoles. There a lot of outdoor activities to enjoy such as camping, hiking, cycling, running, rugby, golf, swimming at the pool, rock climbing and bouldering.

    There are lots of clubs on campus, and there are regular school-sponsored events. The school has a golf course, and there's a good variety of fine arts and physical recreation classes available. Students also hang out at Walmart, because NMT is in the small town of Socorro and there isn't always a lot to do besides school work (which will keep you pretty busy!). Some students drink, and there are parties fairly regularly, but it's certainly not a party school.

    One of the quotes from people visiting Tech from the party school of State, Ya'll's parties are smaller than ours and we play games better than you, but damn ya'll know how to drink. If parting is not your scene the rock climbing in the area is amazing. Box canyon offers hundreds of sport routes and even more bouldering problems. Tech's golf course cost only $5 to play on for Tech students and if you become a member of the golf club for $40 you get unlimited play and range balls for the semester. Ruidoso is 2 hours away for winter skiing/boarding, and Taos and Angel Fire are only about 4 hours North.

    Though the town of Socorro is not too big, one can still adventure off campus to look around. Once in a while the town will hold a carnival or two for the students and residents to make life a bit more exciting. At the campus, there is a game room with multiple pool tables, two Xbox's, and a foosball table. If one doesn't feel up to playing these games, a simple hanging out with friends can easily suffice.

    One of the best ways to have fun at NMT is to join one or more clubs. There are several to choose from, and most can be seen on the student government website if you are interested. Many are academic or professional, though finding other students with similar interests is nice, and also smart, academically. You may choose to participate in sports teams, including rugby, soccer, basketball, baseball, ultimate frisbee, etc, though the only collegiate sports we have are male and female rugby and soccer. I personally enjoy NMT Greek Life, a new addition to NMT. Here, you can meet people from many walks of life, several academic backgrounds, and most of them are very open and happy to befriend newcomers! Outside of school, there are opportunities for camping, hiking, breath-taking drives, etc.

    Read a book, go for a hike in the mountains, maybe spend time with friends... not really a whole lot unless you like physical activity or video games.

    I am a senator, and play volleyball. But there's so much more on campus, the college hosts many events from movies to comedians and magicians. We also have acts from around the country come preform at our Preforming Arts Building and its free for students! There's also many clubs that host events, such as our Waffle club hosts a waffle and tea rave. (Waffle is a club which gets together on Thursday nights and eats waffles).

    There are a variety of fun elective classes, school clubs, sports clubs, tennis courts on campus, pool, gym, and golf course at New Mexico Tech. In town, there are restaurants, parks, and the Loma Movie theater. Yes, Socorro is a small town but I have never been bored here from studying to spending time with friends, you always find something to do.
