    There are many things to do here for fun! If theater is your thing, Tufts offers a wide range of group performances, from African Dance Collectives to Acapella groups. If you are more of a party person, you can find some around campus on the weekends! Many clubs will sometimes get together and organize trips into Boston. Honestly, your fun is up to you and what you make of it!

    There's always something going on on-campus- if you're part of a few clubs, you probably have something going on any given night- but if you want to get away from Tufts for a while, Davis square, a fifteen minute walk away, is where you'll find most of the students' favourite restaurants and small shops. Don't forget that Boston and Cambridge are both right there, in and around which are a number of other college campuses. Boston is, understandably, a huge destination for bands and artists of all varieties. Big acts often come through town, though you can find a plethora of great musicians playing smaller venues all over the city. Make sure to get downtown at least once or twice a month: a common regret among upperclassmen seems to be that they haven't yet gotten off campus on the weekends frequently enough.

    Clubs and similar activities are really the way to get involved and enjoy yourself at Tufts. Some standouts would be TDC (Tufts Dance Collective), TMC (Tufts Mountain Club - they organize a bunch of fun things including outdoor activities), all the acapella groups, drama, intramural sports, but it really depends on what you're interested in. It's also always pretty easy and fun to go to Davis Square or into Boston downtown.

    Boston Red Sox, Celtics, Bruins....all accessible with a T-Ride or hop the Tufts Joey shuttle. Medford and Somerville are OK. Mostly yuppie venues, but worthwhile when you're looking for time to kill without tripping in to Boston. Boston....Harvard Square, Copley plaza shopping, Faneuil Hall eateries and shops, more museums than you can count and most are free (MIT museum is way cool). Tufts sports aren't much to get excited about. In fact efforts to get students excited (Fan the Fire) are pretty lame. But it's small and not overhyped. Did I say Tufts was all about the academics? Actually, Tufts is less a spectator school than a participant school. There are plenty of teams and clubs and ad hoc games and sports to get involved in.

    On campus: sports games; plays and musicals; a cappella concerts; dance performances; bands, comedians, and speakers Tufts brings for students; political debates; relaxing on the Prez Lawn. Off campus: a short subway ride to downtown Boston and then amazing restaurants; concerts at the House of Blues; games at Fenway Park; a stroll down Newbury Street; a performance at the Wilbur Theatre; the list goes on.

    There's always something going on be it a frat party, a free dinner, or just an open get together with one of the cultural centers.

    Boston is a short ride away on the subway, as well as other areas and university. The surrounding areas offer good food and night life and the population is both heavily college-aged as well as graduate students.

    For the city dwellers, it is a quick and easy trip into Boston. The campus has the advantage, though, of having the rolling lawns of more rural campuses and easy access to local lakes and mountains.
