    Sometimes in Northland you have to look for fun. If you want to do nothing, it is easy to sit in your room and be isolated. But if you take a look at the posters plastered all over campus, you'd realize there's loads to do here. We have many events related to Gender and Sexuality, Sustainable Living, Environmental Speakers, and much more! We have dog sled races that occur near the college, a local small town movie theater, and a huge city only an hour and a half away.

    Northland abounds with opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Bay City Creek runs through a ravine in the middle of campus. You can visit the Grandfather Tree just behind Northland's main campus, and Lake Superior is only a short walk away. There are plenty of chances to go cross country and alpine skiing, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, hunting, backpacking, running, or hiking. Students at Northland love to hang out in small groups, but there are plenty of events, get-togethers, and shin-digs that almost the entire student body attends. Every month we have a Coffee Haus where awesome bands perform and everyone gets a chance to dance and hang out all for free. In the winter we have Snofest, and in the spring we have Folkfest. All these events are provided for free by the Northland College Student Association.

    You will never be bored, there is so much fun things to do for all the seasons. You can go hiking and bike riding in the parks around the area or go for a walk in the ravine. In the fall you can head up to Bay Field and see all the beautiful fall colors. And during the winter time you can build snowmen, forts, go snowboarding and sledding.

    There are wellness courses all year long that take up a lot of time, fulfill a graduation requirement, and are a lot of fun. Besides that, there are res life programs all the time, though most people don't attend. It seems like the most active social event are random parties students throw, as well as the Coffee Haus's and First Friday Dances.

    Lots of time to go to local places in town, bike around, go to Scenic places. The lake is literally one mile from campus & walking to main street takes no time at all. ALSO the Bart Bus System is free for all Northland College Students (just show your I.D.)

    Since Ashland, WI is a small city of about 8,000, there isn't a whole lot to entertain yourself with. There is a Cinema and a couple nice restaurants. A lot of students will camp and hike in their free time. Kayaking and canoeing is also incorporated.
