    Since Taylor is in Upland, there are not many places to go near Taylor, so people make their own fun. You might go on a Polar Pop run with friends to the marathon gas station. There is Ivanhoes down the road if you want to go get ice-cream or food. A lot of people find things to do with their friends or their wing. There are almost always athletic events. There are intramurals that anyone can be involved in. When it is nice out you will probably see a lot of people outside playing frisbee or frolf. Most wings will have open houses where they decorate their wing in a fun way and invite the campus to come over. There are pick-a-dates in which students basically go on fun group dates.

    You may think that being out in the middle of no where it would make college life pretty boring right? Wrong, despite Taylor's rural location there are plenty of ways to have fun. Aside from the excellent Dorm life they have very nice athletic facilities free to be used, a very nice campus for when you want to do things outside, and the school also does a good job of planning fun things like the air band competition and nostalgia night. All in all there is always something fun to do around Taylor!

    In Upland, IN there really isn't too much to do for fun, be we find ways to make our own fun. Ivanhoe's is a local ice cream shop and restaurant that is a great place to get off campus and relax. Pick-a-dates, floor/wing events, sporting events, theatre, concerts, and so many more things are available on weekends for you to take part in. Take time for something at least twice a month. You won't regret it.

    Unfortunately, you really have to make your own fun here...it's in cornfields, but there are options on campus.

    Taylor is a five minutes' walk from Ivanhoes, a restaurant and ice cream shop that genuinely has the best sundaes and shakes(100 of each) that I've ever tasted. Taylor is also 20 minutes away from Marion, IN, a bigger city that has a walmart and meijer as well as just about any restaurant you can think of, several bowling alleys, a movie theatre, and a mall.

    Because Taylor is in a cornfield, you have to be very creative with your fun. Go to McDonald's, play frolf, baseball, go to Indianapolis, etc. The options on campus are limited, but be creative and you can do anything.

    Taylor University has lots of events planned throughout the year for students to participate in. There are talent shows, athletic events, comedy nights, bike races, and so much more. Taylor is located in basically the middle of nowhere, so there isn't much to do off campus, but students sometimes make an Ivanhoe's run for shakes or drive to nearby Marion, Indiana for a movie or frozen yogurt.

    There are many, many campus-wide activities with which a person can be involved at TU, and these are often very fun. There are few entertainment options in the area, although a drive to Marion or Muncie normally does the trick. With a little personal initiative, social groups often find fun activities during the week and on weekends.

    There is always a polar pop run to the local gas station or Ivanhoes (home of 100 different sundae and shake flavors). There is also walmart, ihop, steak n shake not too far away. Living in a cornfield makes you creative with games and activities. But there is never a short run of ideas.
