    This campus has an endless array of fun activities, no matter what time of year. Even during the summer months, Purdue keeps up fun programs for students all around campus. There are thousands of clubs that students can join in order to become more involved with events. Every semester several artists come to Purdue as much-needed entertainment for a hard-working student body and flyers cover the campus with different activities every day. Specifically West Lafayette has some great restaurants including Triple XXX, Greyhouse Coffee, and 9 Irish Brothers. In the greater Lafayettte area there are places to visit such as the Colombian Park Zoo, Wolf Park, and a mall. There is something for virtually everyone, and with a big school like Purdue it is a necessity!

    A lot of the stuff around campus is 21+ but there are MANY MANY MANY good places to eat at around campus that are within walking distance. (Almost everything is in walking distance so that's a plus.) There's will also be a lot of free events on campus that PSUB, Purdue Student Union Board, and other organizations hold like carnivals and such.

    Lafayette has a Barnes & Noble and since I enjoy reading I find that to be fun. There is also a mall and many movie theaters. We have a couple of bowling ally's, tons of restaurants and a pretty good night life.

    There are plenty of parties on campus or house parties off campus. The Union holds events on the weekends. Elliott Hall of Music holds events such as plays, musicals, and other events all the time. You can always find something to do at Purdue. If not you are only an hour away from Indy and two hours away from Chicago.

    Anything you want! There are so many weekend activities, sports, and club functions that there is always something to do over the weekend or during the week. The possibilities are endless, and I usually have to make a tough decision figuring out what to do for Friday night. I usually grab my friends and we all go to an improv show, open mic night, fancy dress bowling (our own tradition), or go swing dancing.

    Greek Life is huge at Purdue, and they offer a lot of social opportunities such as philanthropies and mixers. There is also something fairly unique to Purdue and similar to Greek Life, called Cooperative Housing. Cooperatives offer a cheap living alternative and also participate in philanthropies and mixers. However, the Cooperative system is very small compared to Greek Life and offers less opportunities but is a very good price.
