    For fun, there are local house parties around campus. They are walking distant but make sure you are walking with someone else, especially at night. If you do not have a car, there is a shuttle that takes you to the mall and wal mart. If you have a car, you are able to do a lot more. Throughout the year, there are clubs that have parties and buses get sent to the university to pick the kids up.

    I read, play video games with residents down in the main lobby of my dorm. They have movie nights in numerous locations across campus and I sometimes attend them with my friends. During event such as the Superbowl each dorm or hall has a get together where you can hang out and meet new people that you may have never seen around campus.

    Organizations!!!! Joining a campus organization is not only fun but it is a great way to network. You will meet new people each year and each organization participate in various activities on campus and outside of campus. This may include hosting a show or planning a spring break trip together.

    Because the university sits right in the heart o Petersburg, a small town with not much activity, there is not much to do around there. There is a mall, Walmart, Target, and Sam's Club close by for shopping. A far as partying and night life, you would have to go to Richmond which is about 15 to 20 minutes away.
