    Near the campus there is a plaza named University Village were there is a movie theater and food. Everything there is pretty cheap and many can go with friends to hangout or just release some stress from classes. Also, the Riverside bus is free to UCR students, which saves a lot of money. One can go to downtown Riverside for sight-seeing or to the mall.

    Go to Moreno Valley or Tyler Mall. Rush a sorority or fraternity. There is not much out here so you have to go out and make your own fun.

    Well theirs the bad part, not knowing the area and lack of transportation limits your fun; however, there are clubs to join to do on your free time which is a good way to make new friends. There is the village with many restaurants to go hang out with friends or mountains to go hiking. The school always offers evens which two big ones are Heat and Spring Splash which are a must to attend.

    During the week, there is so much to do on campus. There's always events on Wednesdays at noon, workshops, tournaments and more. However, once the weekend rolls in, life on campus and even in the surrounding areas are completely dead. Everyone seems to always leave for the weekend. However, what I use to do for fun was go hike the C or mount Rubidoux. You could also go to the movie theater that is right across the street from campus at the University Village. Or you could go to Tyler Mall, although it is pretty far for students with no cars and on budgets. Get creative!

    Riverside is near Los Angeles and San Diego so its easy to take a trip there. We get the bus for free!

    Downtown Riverside, Galleria at Tyler and any on-campus activities. The brochure saying surf and ski is a LIE. Unless you have a car (and are willing to pay for the hefty fees of owning one on campus), you most likely will never leave Riverside. There are many house parties though if that is your game.

    Plenty of places to eat around campus, as well as dancing and bars around town. It is also 45 minutes from the beach and the mountains. Perfect location.
