    There are events in Bay Henn's underground for freshman and other students who want to attend maybe once a month. There are parties every weekend by different fraternities and sororities. There are usually parties at the Union hosted by other student organizations for various holidays. We have the rec, working out is fun right?

    There are so many clubs, sports, intermurals, and if none of these interest you there is always something new to try.

    There are soooo many activities on campus. Intramural sports, regular sports, clubs, races, greek life, random tournament activities like mud volley ball, big pink volleyball, and so on. There are talent shows, family weekends, carnivals, roller skating nights and much more. Also, if they don't have a club you want to join, start your own! That's what I did. They make the process pretty simple and you can leave your mark on the University. In town there are restaurants, a movie theater, bowling alley, indoor bow and arrow shooting range, and more. It is a small town, keep that in mind and don't expect a mall, but instead enjoy the charm Macomb has to offer.

    Get involved! I had never played rugby before college, and I joined the Women's Club Rugby Team and I love it! Whatever you decide is the best fit for you, whether it's greek life or joining a club, get involved.

    I like to go to the shows that Western puts on like the dance or theatre shows and not just because I am a Musical Theatre major. They're fun to attend and have great audiences. For future students there's always football, soccer, or basketball games to go to which is fun as well. Once you make friends there is always things to do within your group of friends even though Macomb is a small town. There's restaurants, movie theatres, stores, etc.
