    I usually go to Helwig (the gym) and play some sports with some friends. There are times that I go to the library and check out some board games with some friends.

    Unfortunately, there are not a lot of extra activities for students to do on campus but the school itself is not too far from many sources of entertainment within the city itself.

    Dude! You're in Chicago! The Brown Line runs right near campus, so it's easy to get downtown... and from there, you can do anything. The Belmont stop is a common hangout spot for students, with a popular frozen yogurt joint and Clarke's restaurant. Residence Life offers many opportunities for student activities throughout the year... movie nights, open mics, bowling, etc. Chicago is always chock-full of things to do.

    Explore Chicago. Take advantage of the L station being close to campus and pretend to be a tourist for a day. Go to the Armitage stop of the brown line and try one of the Italian restaurants there. The Bourgeois Pig off of the Fullerton stop is a great study place for when you want to get off campus but still need to be productive. There's always some kind of events or group happening on campus as well, so you won't ever be bored!

    There's a lot of events in North Park, there's star seeing in the library, fun workouts in the Gym; from karate to pilates, many concerts and plays to see. Also, in one of the dorms there's an area called Java Haus, it's almost like a poetry place, there's talent contests and a mini store that you can even buy ramen/noodles in a cup. Activities outside of campus would be the weekend Anime club, as well as chances to go see the Cubs, White Sox, go to Six Flags, and museums as well.

    If you're a fan of coffee dates, then there's a Starbucks and a cute little cafe called Beijo across from campus that are perfect for hanging out in. The Viking Cafe and Java Haus are nice as well, and campus life hosts lots of fun activities on and off campus.

    The beach is about 20 minutes with bus from campus. Downtown is about 30 minutes with train depending on the hour of the day. Many on campus student organizations offer activities, movie nights and food. Hang out, talk and play.

    There are plenty of restaurants and cute coffee shops around the area. We are also close to the CTA - we're a few blocks from one of the El stops (the train), buses run on most streets surrounding campus, and plenty of things are within a bike-able or even walking distance. Chicago has lots of festivals and concerts, and many of them are free or low priced.
