    On campus there is usually always something to do. At the student center theater they offer movies, they play new moives so its not boring. Or there are programs your RAs put together, you can also suggest programs to your RAs if you want to do something. If you're looking for something off campus then the ice rink is across the street from Dunkin Donuts about five minutes down the road. Its not a far walk, and they sometimes have hockey games there or you can go ice skating. Football games are a nice change of pace, they are exciting and a lot of people go to watch our team play. Try new things, at least once. Even if you dont think you will like a program, or a game, or a movie, just go to say you tried it.

    There is a lot happening all the time, at the cafes they have different days where they either have holiday dinners, or you can make ginger bread houses and enter a contest with them, during finals week they have midnight breakfast at the midtown cafe, and some days they give out free food at the student center. As far as clubs they have a bunch some theatre, one for commuters, a ski/snowboarding club, and many more you don't hear too much about them unless you are in them. I am in the theatre program, so I don't have much time for other clubs.

    Being placed where it is, not much. You'll find a lot of students driving down federal road, or going to the local pet store, Puppies and Kittens. The mall is fairly close to both campuses. Usually, I end up studying or curled up in bed watching movies. The student government and various student clubs offer some activities that are fun, like movie showings.

    There is always something to do on campus. Even across Midtown campus, there is a pizza place and ice cream parlor. Soho's and Giovanni's are fantastic and within walk-able distance. There are posters of activities everywhere, and students also get email updates about upcoming events.

    The Danbury area is full of exiting nightlife. There is a club that is basically just for WestConn students. You can get in as long as you have your ID with you. There is also a big shopping center located 5 minutes from the school.

    There are many clubs you can join and even create your own if you have 5 other people who want that club to open! It's easy to get involved, especially with clubs fair and other events like movie nights by PAC.

    There are a lot to do for fun. Dorms have activities during the week and the weekends. The mall and movie theater is only a short drive away. Downtown Danbury is a short walk away. You will never get bored on campus, and if you do there's plenty of activities that you can get involved in so you won't!
