    School always has some activity such as bingo or party or rave going on, school-funded and not.

    There are plenty of student activities almost every weekend that are all free. There are also many hiking trails near by, and lots of restaurants.

    There's usually campus events going on every weekend, which can provide an hour or two of fun. You won't hear this from admissions, but there are plenty of frat parties that go on. Otherwise, there is nothing much to do on campus. If you want something to do past 9, which is when most things close, then you can go downtown, but you'll need a car if you want to go on a weekday night.

    There are several Greek fraternities and sororities, as well as sports teams and club teams. Almost every club you can imagine exists, and if it doesn't exist, make the club! Mill Mountain is a cute coffee shop to either do homework or hang out with friends while drinking your favorite drink. Every weekend you can find a party to attend or a house to go to hang out and have fun.

    There is so much to do for fun around Roanoke. I'm a huge fan of being outside and hiking, and there are tons of hiking spots around the school that aren't too far away. There is also the option to visit downtown Roanoke, which is fun, going to the movies, or to the mall, which are both not very far away.

    Plenty of clubs for all majors and interests, from the silliest (Harry Potter Club) to prestigious (Alpha Kappa Psi). There's definitely a club that will fit any interest.
