    The campus hosts many events from it's Greek Life and other student organizations. There are many things to do and recreational activities and sports held on and around the campus that any student can get involved in. Not only that, but places on the VCU campus, like the underground Commons break room have other things to enjoy while meeting new people or hanging out with friends.

    City living means a few things: clubs, parties and everything being relatively close. There's a $2 movie theater about 20 minutes away. The river is another 20 minutes away which is perfect for the beautiful weather and boring days. Night life is always a blast with house-parties, clubs, and sponsored events. VCU always has different events and programs going throughout the spring and fall semesters. Be open to new things and there is always a chance for fun.

    On hot days, everyone hangs outside and swinging on hammocks at Monroe Park or at the compass. There's a lot of clubs in the area, if that's what you're into. A lot of parties go on.

    Basketball games! They are the most insanely thing you can do. Walking a short distance down to the river let the nature loving personality be let lose. Chilling outside by the dorms is also a great time to relax and talk with friends.

    In Richmond, there's mostly clubs and restaurants, so if you want something different you may have to drive or get creative. VCU usually tries to have stuff going on also. You can also check out the Facebook page for your class and see if anything is going on (i.e. a snowball fight in Monroe Park).

    There are so many different things to do not only on campus, but also off. You could go to the gym and participate in numerous sports/recreational things or even spend a day in Carytown of Richmond. If you just want to stay close to your dorm, then Monroe Park is also a fun option. You could sit in the park and soak up some rays!

    Head down Broad street to find some cool shops. You can also take a short drive to Carytown, where you'll find a delightful strip of unique restaurants and stores, along with the historic Byrd theater. There are some cool venues in the area, and there are some cool clubs. Don't worry - there is always something going on at VCU.

    Its plenty of fun activities and events that go on daily with the clubs and organizations on campus. VCU as a school also gets involved and throws different events for you too attend, to keep you active. As a current student its best you join one of the many clubs on campus to keep you busy and from being bored and if thats not your thing, the school also have alot of volunteer opportunities that you can do also.
