    I go to the library to spend some time to myself, go to the recreation center to work out, and enjoy spending extra time with students and professors to expand my knowledge,

    On the campus, groups are always throwing activities. There is a Pub that has Karaoke and live bands play. Sometimes there are dance parties and every September there is Starvation Gulch, where groups on campus build multiple two story bonfires celebrating the anniversary of when the campus became no longer a dry campus.

    UAF has many sport events to attend, running and skiing trails available, and a big animal research farm to visit. Nearby UAF is the ACRC and the College Coffee house, which both provide internet and are good places to study and hang with friends. Another good study spot is Take 5, which is a little bit further down the road than the other two previously listed, but once again, great drinks and a friendly place to chill for a bit.

    There are always events going on: parties, dances, movie showings, or sporting events. There's never a bored moment at UAF. The dorms create a community environment where gamers can link up and play together, students have the opportunity to receive money to create clubs, and activities are scheduled for all types of people.

    There are so many things! We have plenty of on-campus stuff to choose from, such as an arcade, a bowling alley, dances, karaoke nights, and intramural sports of any kind. RAs are required to do programs within the dorms, so students will have a chance to bond within their dorm of dwelling. Within town, there are movies, laser tag, go-karts, paintball, and so many other choices. Fairbanks also has an extremely active community, holding large-scale races in skiing and running.

    Shiver! No, seriously, there are tons of things to do, from sports to clubs. However if you are an engineering student, you won't have time for any of them. Get used to enjoying fun vicariously, and remember that the payoff is that you'll have a job after graduation so you can repay your loans!
