    On campus, there isn't much. Its a fairly small campus. If you're not part of a club or organization, you're going to have a terrible time. On the weekends there's nothing to do. The town doesn't have anything and there are no places for students to just hang out. We have one pool table, and games but nothing much.

    I have attended a few parties on campus, but spend most of my free time nearby eating out in Harrisburg and Hershey and attending concerts in Philadelphia, and Baltimore.

    There's a ton to do for fun here. You can join THON and help run the events the club hosts. Not to mention there's a ton of other clubs you can join. There's also baseball, basketball, volleyball games to attend and many on campus events such as the annual Carnival For A Cure or Big Man on Campus!

    The campus has a lot of activities on site. One day they had bouncy houses and obstacles to run around in. They also throw an all nighter and participate in a bunch of clubs. If the clubs don't suit you then you can get involved in an on campus job.

    Being part of the family, means getting involved. The Penn State Family is wide open when it comes to the arena of activities and social gatherings. Particularly at the Harrisburg campus there is a lot of time for social activities that will keep you searching for topics to speak on and on about.

    They're so many clubs and organizations that you can get into! There will be no excuse on being bored! Look out for signs! There is always something going on.

    Very big car scene in central PA, there's always a car meet somewhere. There's two big malls and 3 movie theaters, and more bars than you can visit in one lifetime.
