    The university has many things to do to have fun. There are many student organizations that students can take part in for make friends. Also there is a place called Danes After Dark at Albany where students can get together to play games, listen to music, and watch movies.

    There are so many opportunities to have fun on campus. Each residential quad has a lot of green space for students to hang out in during the warmer weather. Collin Circle is a great place for people to be to eat, mingle, or play sports or music. Danes After Dark is a program available weekend nights that allows students to relax from a long school week, with a DJ and music, pool and ping-pong tables, and even sometimes masseuses. Many guest speakers come to Albany and students have the opportunities of seeing them speak in the auditoriums, or watching our fellow students perform plays and works of music.

    You can go to many parties down town. There is also a mall which is 3 minutes away with lots of cool stores, restaurants and yogurt places. They also have a nice movie theater.

    UAlbany is near.... Albany! Albany is a cute little city that has dozens of restaurants and tiny shops. There is also a big mall complex with Dave & Busters and a movie theater about 10 minutes away by bus (which you can get on right from campus.) Aside from playing games and shopping for clothes and whatnot, there is an enormous Walmart for practically everything. I usually purchase food from there to keep in my dorm for late nights but they have anything else you could possibly need and it's not that much further than the mall. For activities on campus, there are many clubs and teams that you can join. UAlbany even has a laser tag club and a gaming club. The advantage of having so much diversity on campus, is having a plethora of clubs and teams. There's bound to be one that grabs your interest. People also tend to party a lot in downtown Albany. If you have some friends and know where to go it could be fun if you're in to that kind of thing.

    There are lots of clubs, organizations, and intramural activities on campus. Off campus, there are plenty of places to have a good time as well.
