    It's Sarasota. Not much. Go to the beach--Siesta isn't too far. St. Armands circle is fun for about a week, but it's very touristy.

    Sarasota is a rather dull place, but Ringling has a partnership with the local bus company meaning that you get free transport any where you like, meaning downtown is just a 15 minute bus ride away.

    Not much, besides the beach close by. The beach is nearly walking distance away from the school though, and it is one of the top rated beaches in the US. Other than that though, there isn't many places to visit.

    Joining the a cappella club The Music Minors, sketching with friends, joining the quidditch team, and relaxing on the front deck of the Student Center.

    The college provides a lot of activities throughout the year (usually free). The beach is also really close. There are always a lot of festivals going on in the area (art/music festivals). There are plenty of museums nearby, too.
