    Well, there's always the Frat quad, but the Frat Quad is not very welcoming to people of color. But usually when I was an undergrad, there was always a get-together in Southside or off campus. But I hear Boulder's cafe is the new stop to go to, which is right across the bridge.

    There is a movie on campus every weekend and other activities, but students seem to be happiest drunk at parties. I've also heard of a lot of rape charges here on campus. I don't know if that's normal, but it certainly wasn't the case at my first college.

    There's always something going on. A Capella is a huge deal here and the concerts are great. A lot of bands play in/near Rochester.

    The city is relatively close, so you can always go there. There are movies that play on campus every weekend. There is also a bit of a party scene on campus. There are parties almost every weekend, so if that's your thing then you're in luck. Nobody really cares if you don't party though.

    So many fun clubs and activities on campus. There are clubs for things that I had never before heard of, and the A Cappella groups on campus are amazing.

    There are always parties on the weekends as well as events at the Eastman School of Music and you can always attend some RIT parties.

    There is a lot to do on campus, the hard part is finding which one to do. There are many clubs and we have two gyms. Every Saturday a bus goes to the mall area which I always did so that I can get off campus.

    Rochester's a small city but there can be a lot of exploring to do around campus and the university's other campuses as well (Eastman school of music and University of Rochester Medical Campus). Along with downtown Rochester, that has a lot of small boutiques, cafes, bars and clubs, the area around Rochester also has a lot in store for you.

    There is a large greek life presence on campus, and joining any of such organizations will be a lot of fun. Parties are both on and off campus (in the 19th ward), but there is much more to do than that. I would say the vast array of clubs available is a great way to branch out and find a new interest.

    Gay-bar hopping, frat/sorority parties, Canada, plus a plethora of clubs and activities. There's something for everyone.
