    I personally like to go outside with my guitar and just play. I also like to stay indoors and play guitar, or I rent the music room and I play piano there for an hour or two.

    The University of California Merced is not by any means close to the rest of the city of Merced- it is located more in the outskirts of the city, and isolated. While transportation is provided in terms of a bus system, even in the city of Merced there is not much to do at all. Even if students were to take advantage of the transportation provided, to get to town the bus ride overall can be anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour long. In regards to the city of Merced, there really is nothing to do. Students at the University mainly depend on activities that take place on campus for something to do. Events are planned by RAâ??s and organizations regularly, usually at least once a week. These activities allow students at UC Merced to have something to do, since the city of Merced doesnâ??t really provide anything significantly fun.

    The school may be a little out of the ways bu there are things to do if you find them. There our movie theaters, Yosemite's is close so you can go hiking or go to the slopes. If you want to be active there are many clubs, sororities, or fraternities to join, just choose by what interest you. You also receive messages on various events that are taking place through your email.

    I can take a walk to the lake or I can downtown and head to the mall or the movie theaters. Merced is also not that far away from San Francisco or Yosemite, so if you makes plans accordingly, you can make a weekend out of it.

    There is not much to do in the town itself other than frat parties and kickbacks. However(!!!), San Fran is 2 hours away and Yosemite National Park is close too. And there is also a small zoo in town :)))

    For fun we usually go out to town and hang out at the mall or go out into the fresh air for a walk. There's always plenty of activities on campus! Take advantage of all the fun opportunities. There's even times where they take you out to ice skate and bowling. Just keep an eye out!

    Merced is a small town, roughly around 80,000 people. There is not a lot to do. There is occasionally buzz of big parties, but it eventually dies out. The nightlife is almost nonexistent. There is not a lot to do though. If you like spending your nights alone, watching Netflix movies with a couple of pals, look no further. UC Merced will suffice your needs of Netfilx binging.
