    With Simpson being in such a small town, there really isn't much to do. There are always parties if you want to find them, but its never too crazy. A lot of people leave for the weekends, but I always seem to find something to do.

    Our Campus Activities Board (CAB) is amazing! They're always bringing in comedian's (Hump day Has), musicians for concerts, BINGO, and other exciting activities. There's never a dull week! Plus, they're free to students! Can't beat that!

    Most of us go to Walmart =). There are $4 movies every weekend for the late showings. It's better if you have a car because Des Monies is twenty minutes away. If you have a car there's plenty to do.

    The Campus Activities Board at Simpson is always planning fun things for us to do. From dances, to hypnotists, to comedians, to bands, they keep us entertained. Also, there's a nice hiking trail not too far off campus, and Indianola is home to the National Hot-Air Balloon Museum!

    Sports, going to the football games, or being involved in the activities on campus. Things like Greek Life, or intermural sports is a great place to start.

    Take a walk in the park, join a sport, visit the shops in the area, or get online and join an epic adventure.

    Go to Des Moines. There you have it. There is nothing to do in Indianola. Seriously. For fun, at night time, when my friends and got bored, we would go to the park and swing and stargaze. Which I mean, is totally fun, but come on..
