    Go out to town or northhampton. Join clubs and teams. Go to different events. Hangout on the grass and soak in some sun while it's available. I mostly go to the library or my room.

    Join marching band. Join clubs, the outdoor club has always looked really cool. Stay active and fit, it will definitely make your time more fun. Meet people in your dorm, it helps. Lots of partying, but that's obvious considered we are called Zoomass for a reason. But there are plenty of people that don't party if that's not your scene. Just get involved, it will be a fun time.

    I could write so much about this, but there's a bus system that goes for free (for students) to Northampton all the time which is a great town (especially for geeks who like comics and art and stuff- it's a very fun town). Amherst can get a little boring because it's in the middle of nowhere, but there's enough to do like get late-night donuts at Glazed or just eat pizza and watch marathons of Pawn Stars if you want. Overall, there's a lot of opportunity to have fun. LGBTQA+ dances a few times a year, parties, clubs, and so on.

    There appears to be a lot of clubs and listed on many boards are different activities to attend or do.

    What's not fun to do at UMass? We have great intramural sports, our amazing recreation center, plus three more gyms for other uses! Endless amounts of clubs, activities coordinated for every occasion, movies in the Student Union, and breaking World Records! And if none of that interests you, the night life is insane!!

    Hanging out with friends, listening to music, watching movies. College students are not that different than normal people! Also, the more you're in college the more you cherish and enjoy a good night's sleep.
