    There is always something going on here on campus. Posters or banners are up to show students what is happening at a certain day or for the week. The gym is a place to go for daily workouts and there are a bunch of courts available to play different sports. There is no way you can get bored if you are involved with clubs or organizations because they are always planning or getting together to do things that are enjoyable.
