    Portsmouth as a whole is relatively dull. There are bars and restaurants close to campus, but for the most part, students have to leave town in order to have fun.

    I have joined ZED club, book club, and a sorority. I am very active with them and spend most my spare time having fun with them!

    Although Portsmouth is not the most happening town, campus actually does a lot of extra stuff to keep the students busy. Greek Life is always having some kind activity for students. There are also always fundraisers or games going on.

    Personally, I enjoyed just going to someone elses room. We could go to the gym, swim, or go outside somewhere and play football, soccer, etc. Additionally, a lot of students enjoy walking or running on the flood wall. On nights out, I would go to Noggins ( a bar and club) or Columbia (another bar and club).

    SSU has many clubs, many of which are related to gaming. There's a gaming gladiators club which sometimes holds large competitions for Super Smash Bros. and other games. There's also the Dungeon Dwellers club which is dedicated to tabletop games, Dungeons and Dragons in particular. The most popular club is Zed, which is all about surviving a zombie apocalypse. Twice a year, the Zed club holds a Humans vs. Zombies game where everyone runs around campus and tries to survive as more and more students are turned into zombies. Other clubs include the Minecraft Club and Comic Book Club. The campus also has a small game room with two pool tables, a swimming pool, and a few computer labs in which students can play games. The university holds many fun events, which is good because Portsmouth is a small town and there's not a whole lot to do outside of campus. The local theater does, however, hold 4th Friday Movie nights, which allows anyone with a student ID to go to the theater at midnight and pay $3 for popcorn, a drink, and a movie.
