    I won't beat around the bush...Scranton is a pretty big party school. They say, There ain't no party like a Scranton party! Other than that, with a Scranton student ID, students can ride the bus for free which takes them to several shopping areas that also have movie theaters. There is also a mall within walking distance as well as many restaurants. The University also offers many clubs and sports for students to get involved in.

    The campus has groups that organize activities to do. Even your RA's have activities for you. Some cost money but I have never paid for anything more than $20 and then I got half my money back anyways. If you join clubs they always have events. Not only are there activities by the school you can take the bus out of town to go to movies or you could walk right off campus and find something to do. I can honestly say I am NEVER bored.

    The most exciting forum at Scranton for the on-line learner is that we get to join in whatever is going on at the school. We are able to participate in many schoolwide functions, ideas, contests, and exchanges, which are always made assessable to us.

    Scranton is a small city with a lot of things to do. There are a lot of restaurants nearby. There is a mall within walking distance of the school. Dickson city, a town close by, has a bowling alley, another mall, more restaurants and a movie theater.

    If you're into drinking and partying, there's a ton to do on weekends. Scranton tries to provide alternative activities, but people are usually so busy partying that they don't show up to the activities. A lot of times when I go it's virtually just me, two or three of my friends, and the people running the event.
