    You want the honest answer? Drinking and drugs. That's what there is to do. Well, alright we do have activities, but they're often dull and not very engaging. Most of the school sponsored dance parties are the ones by Latinos Unidos and SOCA, which can be really fun, but if it's not your type of music (latin, hip-hop, jamaican dancehall) then you're probably not going to find many dance parties, unless you find an apartment party with music you like. That said, at most apartment parties there's very little room so you can barely dance, and they get shut down quick anyway. This is why most people here pass the time by smoking themselves silly or drinking until they pass out. Or by taking heroin or something. Apparently we also have a heroin problem here.

    For recreational purposes the campus has a lot of open fields and nature life for people to relax and explore in. We also have a number of performances throughout the year produced by dancers, actors, and other artists who wish to display their field of study more publicly. The weekends are filled with live music and concerts.

    There are lots of great events on campus like Fall Ball, Zombie Prom and Culture Shock (a music festival on campus) but if you want more, NYC is a quick half hour train ride away.

    Port Chester and White Plains aren't terribly large towns, but they have a variety of stores, movie theaters, parks, and the like. There is also a free bus that makes it into White Plains every hour and Port Chester several times a day. Also, it's important to note that getting to NYC is very easy: just take the free bus from campus to White Plains and take a train ($7.50 one way).

    There is ALWAYS some kind of activity being held on campus. You can always find something to do and if you don't know where to find it there are always other students who probably know of something going on. Since the school happens to be located in the middle of the woods, I feel the students and faculty on campus try to make the most of it by doing as much around the grounds. Students can get a full listing of daily events on the Purchase website which includes what time and where.
