    The student neighborhood provides plenty of entertainment on the weekends, building the unity of the student body. If that is not for you, we have plenty of hangout spots on campus, ranging from a bowling alley to a pool hall, to general lounging rooms.

    Campus is rather small, but it is the actual city of Dayton so there is always something going on whether its on campus or off. During finals week there is a carnival set up on campus (which is always fun) and right before Christmas break there is a huge festival known as Christmas on Campus that has all kinds of fun things to do - just last year the university brought in camels to ride and set up an ice skating rink for the students.

    There are movie nights on campus almost every weekend and other events. Club 6 on campus offers alcohol free activities in the evening on some weekends. There are also a lot of restaurants near campus.

    Dayton is all about having fun. Between insane sports events, or a weekend in the ghetto, which is the student neighborhood owned almost entirely by Dayton, you will never be bored.

    The Campus Activity Board is one of the best resources that the school has to supply hours of fun for the students every week. Movies, games, carnivals, day-trips, and much more are not unheard of. But nothing beats having an impromptu snowball fight on KU field!

    UD has a ton of intramural sports, even battleship! I've participated in this a couple of times. There are canoes in the pool at the RecPlex and you try to sink other teams canoes! There are several biking/running trails near campus and along the river. CAB (Campus Activies Board) is always coming up with affordable or free activities for UD students to participate in, such as going to King's Island or sometimes ice skating. It is a great way to hang out with friends and meet new people on campus.

    Lots of clubs and intramurals. Downtown Dayton has plenty of options for fun. Campus Activities Board schedules lots of fun things to do on and off campus almost every weekend for a reduced price.

    There's over 300 clubs and organizations to join! The first Friday of classes, they all set up booths and try to recruit freshmen into joining! Whether you want to play intramural sports, dance, do marching band, theatre, or rush a fraternity/sorority, UD has almost anything! CAB has all of these really cool events too, like they went on a trip to Cedar Point one Saturday, and they took students to the Catching Fire premiere another time! And if you like the party scene, there's that as well. But be careful. A popular place to go is the RecPlex, it's our fitness center. There's a lap pool, hot tub, rock climbing wall, a track, tons of work out equipment, studios for dance and such, and at least 3 gyms with basketball courts. I believe there's also tennis/racquetball courts. Like I said, there's really anything that anyone could want to do!

    The social life is all on campus so you never have to worry about finding a ride to go out. Also it's easy to meet up with various friends since everything goes on in the same general area within 10-15 min walking distance.
