    You have to find what makes you happy. If you like to socialize, you'll have no trouble finding things to do. If you like to be involved, there are infinite possibilities for clubs and organizations. If you enjoy nature, the campus provides beautiful seclusion from the chaos of life.

    There are so many things you can do for fun. The most known way to have fun is going to Notre Dame. Especially on game days! They will rock your weekends. There are also plently of dances available to all students in Notre Dame and also for Saint Mary's and Holy Cross. For example this Halloween the had Salsa-ween and hip-hop night. Students would go in their costumes and dance. There are movie nights, bon-fires, and lantern lighting. You can always join a club. There are so many options. La Fuerza, student government, she's the first, key, swing dancing, choir, social work etc. or joining a sport can also be fun if you enjoy sports. Going out with friends on the weekend. There are buses coming around available for free for students. They go around the hall no need to look for them.

    Saint Mary's has a lot of activities and clubs that host events throughout the year. Some big events include: Dance Marathon, class formals and all-school formal, Belles Bash, Midnight Madness. There are also a lot of opportunities for fun across the street at Notre Dame. One of Saint Mary's perks is that SMC women are able to purchase Notre Dame football season tickets. So in the fall, football games and tailgating parties are the place to be. Saint Mary's girls are able to attend any of Notre Dame's athletic events, which are always really exciting. There are always events and activities going on at Notre Dame that Saint Mary's girls can usually take part in as well.

    There are buses (student one-month pass on the city bus is 30 dollars) that can take you all over South Bend and into Mishawaka. Mishawaka is where the mall is, if you're into that sort of thing. Notre Dame is close by, and that school is very much into sports, so if you're into that sort of thing, you may enjoy hopping across the street to Notre Dame's campus. Also, Notre Dame has guys if you prefer male company, and so does Holy Cross college, which is also nearby. Notre Dame's campus is the main attraction in South Bend, but there are other things to do. You'll be pretty bored if you like hiking, for there are not any trails around, and if you like biking, you'll be pretty frustrated. South Bend has bike paths but drivers rarely pay attention to bikers. The city bus is probably your best bet for transportation.

    Notre Dame being right across the street offers many social activities and benefits. I recommend going to the football games, or at least just the tailgates, in the fall. Legends is a great place for freshmen. Legends is a restaurant/night club free of cost for students. They also have movies, speed dating, concerts and various other activities here. Saint Mary's has a couple dances each year which are very fun and I strongly recommend joining clubs to give you more events to attend! Notre Dame also hosts dances which Saint Mary's girls often attend. You can also join clubs at Notre Dame and attend many of their sporting events for free (I believe everything besides football and basketball is free of cost).

    For fun my friends and I like to hang out and watch movies. We also enjoy going over to Notre Dame to participate in activities as well. There are movie theaters and tons of restaurants to go to that are close as well.
