    The town is really fun to go out to eat and wonder around.

    The great thing about West Chester, and the thing that potential students find most attractive about the campus, is the location. It'Â?s not in the middle of nowhere, but it'Â?s not in the middle of the city. But if you want to get to the middle of nowhere, it'Â?s close by, and if you want to get to the city, it's close by. SEPTA bus services run right through the campus, so if you and your friends want to go into Philly for the day, you catch the SEPTA bus to the train station in Philly, and it'Â?s only an hour ride. Usually my friends and I will take the bus into Philly at least once a semester to go see a concert or walk around the city. You do not have to have a car on campus to be able to get somewhere fun. The borough of West Chester (borough is just a fancy name for town) is right up the street from campus. There are tons of shops and restaurants within a few blocks of each other. When it's nice out, it'Â?s great to just take a walk into town to go to Kiwi, the best frozen yogurt place in the world, or just to go for a walk. Once you're of age, there are a dozen great bars all within walking distance of each other and of campus. On campus, there is always something going on. The university sponsors a Friday night program called Sykes After Dark (which I think they are renaming soon), which the university holds every Friday night to promote students not drinking on or off campus. They have something different every week, including comedians, casino nights, BINGO night, JAVA JAM open mic nights, and karaoke. Additionally, there's always free food and a free midnight movie if you have the Sykes After Dark wristband. Every weekend, Sykes shows a movie at several different times throughout the weekend for $2. This is a movie that just came out of theaters. In addition to all of this, other campus activities are always happening, including concerts, football games, conferences, and other sporting events.

    There is not much to do for fun. There is no local movie theater or bowling alley. The only thing you can do is see a movie in the student union building on the weekend.

    Whether it is extracurriculars through the school, campus groups, or affiliated groups from nearby places, there is always something to do on campus. From different events scheduled yearly, the special themes planned every Friday night on campus, or the small town atmosphere a block from campus, you will have something to do if you want something to do.

    Joining clubs and making friends with the right people is very important. Along with school work, clubs will keep you very busy. In college you will learn to manage your time very quickly considering you will not have a lot of free time.

    Each dorm hall has monthly events to get every one together. Football games are fun if you can get a good amount of people to go. Sykes after dark is their big promotion, a weekly event at the student union, its kind of lame but some people enjoy it. There is also a brand new, beautiful Rec center that students should take advantage of.
