Student Responses to Review Topic: What To Do For Fun

    When I first got to UMBC I was wondering what there was to do around there since there isn't a college town and the campus is mostly populated with other first year students. After some looking around though, I discovered UMBC has many great events that they host. The clubs put on dance shows, the residential halls do community events every few weeks, there is a free shuttle to the mall nearby with a movie theater and Chipotle. Also, Baltimore is close by and the inner harbor is always a pretty place to be. DC is also a metro ride away. There are things to do, but it may be harder to dig around to find then it would be at other colleges.

    Baltimore is 15 minutes from the campus, access to the city will never leave you bored on the weekends.

    People host parties in the neighborhood surrounding the school, so often times people go out to those. There are also a few clubs around the area that students also go to. For daytime fun, you can go to many of the events hosted by our Students Events Board (SEB).

    If you want to have some fun on the UMBC campus one way to get involved within the Retriever community. The Retriever community consist of a lot of individuals who are gregarious and open to meeting new people. Also I would advise that you enter the many clubs that will be available to you during the opening week. Also the mall is also close by the school so if you want to go out or off campus that is available to you.

    There are a ridiculous amount of free events on campus happening every day that cater to every student's needs. We also have local merchants come by for poster sales, jewelry sales and the like near the Bookstore and the Commons Breezeway. There's a lecture hall on campus where weekly movies are shown ($5 entry fee unless you go on Saturday nights when it's free- the popcorn is free too). You can also go on bus trips to places like the Renaissance Festival, midnight movie releases, Hershey Park, etc. for decent pricing. There's a game room in the Commons that has pool, ping pong, video games, and a few various arcade games. There's also a bar on campus in the Commons called Flat Tuesdays which does karaoke, but that's also done in the Sports Zone if you happen to be under 21. If you're fond of nature we have a ton of it- there's a pond you can walk out to through the woods, as well as CERA which is a protected forest that has pathways though it. We are also very close to Baltimore so a trip to Fell's Point, the Inner Harbor, or Old Ellicott City is reasonable.

    I have a lot of artistic friends, so I tend to go to shows and recitals on campus. There are also lots of activities set up by students which can be fun (anything by SEB is free and probably involves food!). Definitely go to Welcome Week and Involvement Fest activities. I hear Quadmania is the best event, but I haven't been to one yet since I'm a freshie.
