    There are tons of fun things to do, but only if you have a car and are willing to travel. There is snowboarding, horse back riding and swimming in a large spring-fed pool. But all of those activities are a couple hours drive away from campus. It may be better to hike into the hill. Just watch out for mountain lions.

    Lots of small and personal student organizations around campus. The area is also beautiful! You can go to the big bend national park, go star gazing at Fort Davis, or go check out the Marfa lights in Marfa. Also there are always little festivals going on around the different towns.

    Watch a movie outside, play a game of sand volleyball, visit the McDonald's Observatorium, as well as take a trip to Marfa to visit the Marfa Lights. Take a trip to Balmorea and dip into the fresh spring fed pool, or hike up the davis mountains. Travel even further away and camp at the Big Bend National forest!
