    There are musicians in the Music building, so you can just drop in and jam with them. There are a variety of clubs, such as Circle K, Fashion Association, ASUCD, etc.

    There are over 600 clubs in Davis; you're bound to find something you're interested in. And if not, exploring our little town is an adventure in itself. Wednesday nights and Sunday mornings are our Davis Farmer's Market, which is full of great food, fresh produce, and fantastic performances. Additionally, there's a plethora of things to see on campus, including free entrance to home sports games, half-off tickets to world-class performances at the Mondavi Center for Performing Arts, and dozens of gardens scattered around campus.

    Davis is a small town so usually there isn't much to do in the city other than attend sporting events or parties. Occasionally there are some cool concerts that come through Davis as well. However the location of Davis makes it easy to go out of town and possibly go to skiing or snowboarding. There are also plenty of places to go hiking and river rafting as well if you're more of an outdoorsman. Overall the location of Davis makes it easy to do a lot of things and see lots of CA.

    Bike rides are a given. Exploring campus is always a great idea because it is the largest UC campus in area. Downtown Davis is full of cute quirky shops and great restaurants, if you are a foodie. Sacramento is close by, with fun concerts and activities. The Bay area and Lake Tahoe aren't far either, allowing opportunities to go to sports games, concerts, the snow, or just fun day trips in another city.

    Go to the ARC! play racket ball with your friends. Go to all the social events (after finishing your homework and studying of course), they usually have many for the freshman dorm life students. Do not miss out on dance events that they have each year for freshman. The Great Gatsby ball room dance was a fun one to attend this year. Sometimes they also have movie nights outside in the quad infront of the dorms and it gets pretty fun and its a great way to meet new people you didn't know lived in your dorm area! Also try joining clubs. There are more than 500 clubs here at Davis ranging from religious affiliated clubs to health care, dentistry, community service, animal science, humanities, history, dramatic arts, and the list goes on. Check out what interests you! Also do not miss out the relaxing arboretum! it's a great place to just hang out with friends and family and have a nice picnic day, or even get some studying done! Also last but not least, check out downtown Davis, it is not as small as it seems, it has the best ice cream during the summer. Try Yoloberry!!

    Intramural sports, clubs, and of course parties. Davis will have your typical college activities, and if you have enough money, even more options become available such as horseback riding. There are plenty of pseudo-natural environments to enjoy (the Arboretum), and the campus is within biking distance of the Putah Creek Riparian Reserve. You can sometimes even see river otters swimming in the Arboretum, so take full advantage.

    LOTS of biking, as Davis is one of the most bike-friendly communities I've ever been to. There's also lots of things to do downtown, and larger cities (like Sacramento) are a short trip by car or bus. The university Activities and Recreation Center (ARC) offers classes in a huge variety of physical activities, from aikido to rock climbing. The craft center also offers many interesting past-times as well. Nature lovers can explore the Arboretum, and bookworms can browse the Yolo County Library located in northern Davis.

    Like I said before there are hundreds of clubs and activities going on! You can join any club that you want and you can even create one if you don't find any that suit your interests. You can also go to Downtown Davis, which is literally across the street from the campus. There are loads of restaurants and shops that you can go to on your free time. You can always visit the arboretum or the quads to relax or study.

    The best thing to do for fun is to hang out with people. You don't necessarily have to do anything. Just hanging out with people and talking can be a great pass-time, and a great way to make new friends. If you do feel like going out, go out with friends for fun. Explore the campus or whatever little town or city that your university is in. I love to bike into my downtown area with some friends, grab something to eat, walk around a little and window shop, maybe watch a movie, and then bike back. But I also know there is a great number of people looking forward to all those college parties. There are plenty of parties in college. More so if you join a social fraternity or sorority. Being in a fraternity, I can tell you there is always something to do. They may not always be fun things, for example there are weekly cleanings and meetings, but it does require you to get out of your room and talk with people. When you are not cleaning or having meetings, you are more than likely do something fun or preparing for something fun. Coming into Davis I thought there would not be many parties, but then I realized that everyone likes to party. So whether you are looking to party, relax, meet new people, or go on lunch/food dates with friends or someone of interest, most college campuses offer all of those things all the time, but from my experience I can tell you that UC Davis definitely offers those resources! Its easy to have fun and get hurt, so when you are having fun, just make sure to stay safe.
