    Come see the latest theater performance, or perhaps a night of improv with the Bluffoons. If the weather is good, many students can be found on the quads, usually playing frisbee. If staying on campus doesn't sound entertaining, it's just a short bus ride to downtown Portland!

    CPB, the Campus Program Board, as well as the many different clubs and organizations on campus have programs going on almost every week. All you have to do is pay attention to the pilots-weekly emails the school sends out for more information. CPB plays free movies every weekend in our auditorium and Pilots After Dark provides awesome late-night activities on the weekends. PAD activities range from karaoke, to live dj sets and performances, to trivia night, and more. CPB also hosts dances in conjunction with ASUP. Take advantage of the fact that you're in the city of Portland. Portland culture is amazing once you get yourself immersed. Go on a hike, explore downtown, the food carts, and more! The possibilities are truly endless once you get yourself to actually do them.

    Student Activities does A LOT of late night programming for students on Fridays and Saturdays. There's always off-campus parties to find - if you're feeling adventurous. But the dorms all provide other social activities for students who just want to stay in.

    The city life in downtown Portland is amazing. I love going to concerts either at the Rose Quarter or the Crystal Ballroom and tickets can be as cheap as $20 with so many venues and so many artists. Pioneer Square is fun to visit and there is a ton of shopping in unique Portland stores as well as malls. Public transportation is easy and reasonably priced. On campus they show movies every Friday and Saturday and have live music in the Cove (an on campus hangout and dining area) as well. There are lots of activities and clubs to get involved in along with free fitness classes for all the students.

    Soccer is the big sport here and the games are a blast to go to. One of the all male dorms has a drum squad that plays at every game and the students watching the game just go crazy. On the weekends there are things to do during the night for those like me that don't like to go to parties. They show movies that are in between theaters and DVD on Friday and Saturday like Despicable Me 2, Monsters University and Great Gatsby. There are also a variety of clubs to join from intramural sports to a capella and improv groups to biology club and spanish club. The campus is just a short bus ride away from downtown Portland as well, making it easy for people to go shopping or get Voodoo Donuts on the weekends.

    Portland is the greatest city in the world. In just an hour and a half drive radius, you get the ocean, the beautiful Gorge (for hiking, kayaking, sailing, etc.), snow-covered mountains, Sauvie Island and other farming areas for local, organic produce, and downtown Portland. The last offers foods from nearly every nation on Earth, Sky High (an expansive room literally covered in trampolines), OMSI (fun science stuff), bars with local beer and wines, waterfront (for people watching), and hundreds of street fairs, farmer's markets, carnivals, festivals, and so on.

    Soccer games are a must! Even if you don't enjoy soccer, you will love the atmosphere. In addition, we are only a stones throw away from the city, so of course getting down there on the weekends are a great escape from the campus.
