    Go to open mic nights, Oberlin has some really cool artists that are just amazing. Go bowling with a group of friends, it is fun just make sure you don't hit anyone with a bowling ball (I accidentally dropped a bowling ball). If you like to go out and party, go and have fun- drink responsibly. Go to different lectures, sometimes you can see if you like a professor before attending one of their classes. Go to Ginko's Art gallery and pet a few kittens. Go to Slow Train and eat a spinach, pepperoni, or turkey and herb croissant with a friend and do some homework. Keep your eyes open for events by clubs and organizations on campus like Drag Ball, Speed Dating, Fashion Shows, and much more.

    Have deep and nerdy conversations about anything and everything. If you like to debate touchy issues such as race, gender, or class, this is the school for you.

    In a theme hall, there are almost always activities happening that (in most cases) anyone is welcome to join in on. If that doesn't suit your fancy though, walk out side with at least one friend and a Frisbee, and I guarantee at least two other people will join you. The entire campus is friendly and welcoming.

    There is a notoriously bad club in the basement of the student union and there are always a lot of parties. If that isn't your style, there's a movie theater, an observatory, numerous conservatory concerts, and usually some form of show whether it be Ocircus or a play/musical. It's really hard to be bored on campus.

    There is a movie theatre up the street. Since the Conservative is on campus there are always musical events going on.

    Visit the College's Art Museum, watch for albino squirrels, wander around campus or ride a bike. There are some pretty nifty shops around Tappan Square. Oh, and concerts - lot's of 'em.

    Depends on the type of person you are: dancers can take dancing classes or go to the 'sco (the Oberlin club), those who like to party can choose from any number of them on any given night, those who love music can choose from 500 concerts a year. There's honestly far too much to do at Oberlin, time management becomes an issue. But you'll never be bored, I promise!

    Set in a lovely town, the Chinese, Lebanese, Mexican, American, and many other restaurants provide a lovely display of culture and delicious nights. In addition, the coveted Slow Train coffee shop always provides a cool hang out environment paired with delicious coffee and refreshments. The Oberlin Lanes bowling alley and the Apollo movie theater are both sources of inexpensive entertainment. The Oberlin College Art Museum is known as the second best college art museum in the nation next to Yale, and certainly lives up to its expectations. The incredible Conservatory always offers countless student, faculty, and guest artist performances. In addition, downtown Cleveland attractions are but 40 minutes away.
