    Being in a small town close by fun is difficult to find. But, making friends with students who have cars driving to Lexington, Roanoke, Lynchburg and Staunton are really fun and have a lot of activities!

    There are lots of activities planned all the time. Go to them-it's a great way to meet new people and get free food.

    If you know someone with a car, Lexington is a great place to explore, as it has many historical sites and intriguing shops. It's also got some nice scenery around, and it's only 10 minutes or so away with a car. Without a car, just walking around Buena Vista brings some beautiful sites, as there are many wonderful trees and pathways to explore. Also, the town community hosts events that are always open to the students, like the annual Mountain Days Festival, that is lots of fun to pop in on.

    The activities for fun depend on you a lot. If you want to, you can find things to do. There a frequent activities, but when there aren't activities, the town has little to offer. In these moments you'll have to invent something, but there's plenty of potential.

    There is an event going on almost every weekend and periodically throughout the week. Most everything is put on by the school and they do everything they can to make it fun and worth while.

    There is always activities on the weekend for students to become involved in. There are dances every few weeks and plenty of service opportunities. In town, there is a public landing along part of the Maury River. In addition, there is a 3 mile river walk along the river. North of town is the George Washington National Forest. The closest town is Lexington (about 6 miles away). There are many stores and a movie theater in Lexington.
