    Meet people! Hang out with them. On gameday weekends many fraternities have band parties that are super fun. There are a lot of bars, but most only let in 19+. Not sure about other activities around town.

    There are always activities happening. There is a farmers market every week, clubs, sporting events. There are restaurants and bars on the strip. Just off of campus, there is the University Mall.

    Going up and down The Strip to check out the restaurants and shops is a must. There are so many extracurricular activities and clubs to get involved with that freshmen almost get inundated, but that's all part of being a balanced student and finding your passion. Checking out downtown Northport is also fun.

    Football of course!!? But there are also other ways to have fun. The pool at the rec center is great for a summer afternoon with friends! Playing sports on the quad is also really fun and walking frat row on friday night is equivalent to New Orleans Burbon street!

    There are clubs to join and if you are interested, the most fun will come out of joining Greek life. Attending football games can be fun especially against certain teams like LSU and Auburn. If you are into the party or bar scene, heading downtown has many bars that many students hit up. There is a movie theater, an amphitheater, bowling alley and skating rink(although many young kids go here). The town doesn't have a lot to offer although you can probably find something to do. It's nice that during Spring Break the coast isn't too far away.

    Alabama has great Athletics and fields so sports events at the University are always fun. Organizations are always having parties of all sorts so there is always something to do. The city of Tuscaloosa has great places to shop and really big movie theater. Tuscaloosa has an amphitheater as well and they bring really good bands to town.

    Football season is the best here but there are also many other sports that students get into for free like the Gymnastics meets and the Baseball games. Many students also study or do activities on the quad when there's nice weather. If you like to go out there's Rounder's or The Jupiter right on The Strip.
