    GOSH well we are the only four-year institution inside the Adirondack Park and we're within an hour of 46 high peaks, all that are above 5,000 feet. There is great hunting and ice-fishing, etc., if you're into that sort of thing. We get a ton of snow, so it's perfect for all your winter hobbies (we're 40 mins from Whiteface mountain, and there's also Mt. Pisgah and a few other ski places). We have ice-climbing (too scary for me personally) and we are 40 minutes away from an Olympic training center in Lake Placid with a crazy ski jump. You can even go bobsledding! We have a lot of free classes here, like yoga (which you have to pay for at most schools!) and dance classes, and you can even be set up with a personal trainer. We have some unique clubs, too, like the Adirondack Mycology Club and the Drafthorse club. There really are a ton of things to do for people of all different interests. Come check it out and you'll see for yourself.

    In all honesty, we're pretty far out in the sticks up here. The nearest town is 12 miles away and even then there's not a whole lot to do in town. If you enjoy the outdoors, there's hiking, skiing and snowboarding (or sledding if you can't handle that stuff), two ropes courses to monkey around on, and plenty of lean-to's you can canoe to and have a fire at. If you're more the indoors-y type or can't stand the winter cold, the faculty puts on plenty of fun events, and there's also a rock-climbing wall, indoor gym with a heated pool, and tons of other stuff to do.

    Anything outside! When at PSC you run, bike, swim, workout, play sports, fish, kayak, mountain climb, and hike. The library is also open most of the time and free or anyone to enjoy.
