    Monmouth is a small town, but the school holds many different events for the students. Also, Salem is only twenty minutes away so there's movie theaters, shopping centers, lots of restaurants, parks, etc.

    There are so many clubs! If you like doing something, find 2 more people that enjoy it too and start a club!

    Oregon is a great place for outdoor activities. Monmouth is less than an hour from the Pacific coast, and about 3 hours from the nearest place to ski or snowboard in the winter. The climate is very mild, with occasion nice days in the winter and very little snow and few storms. Biking, running, outdoor sports are all very popular. Salem has some nice attractions and shopping, and Portland is an easy day trip for a zoo, science museum, more shopping, and music and other cultural activities.

    There are some fun things you can do at Western Oregon University. You can go to the Werner University Center and go hang in the lounge area and play video games or watch tv, or play pool with your buddies. You can also go to the health and wellness center and workout. There are rock climbing, swimming, basketball, racquetball, or practice dance in the mirrored rooms. At night they also have zumba and choreographed cardio, so if u want to dance and workout just go to zumba its so much fun! There's many restaurants you can eat at and a park next to the deli supermarket. A lot of events also go on at Western Oregon university so that you can do something instead of staying in your dorm room.

    Western is within an hour or two drive from the city of fun also known as Portland, Oregon. You will never run out of fun things to do in this city. Clubs, malls, food, and much more. Salem, Oregon is the capital, and is even closer. Salem is not as big as Portland but there is a ton to do there as well. Monmouth, where WOU is located, has a bowling alley, movie theatre, river front park, and lots of restaurants.

    There are a wide variety of clubs and organizations accessible to students on campus. The campus also consistently sponsors events for students to participate in, a lot of which involve prizes. If you're looking for more of a party scene then you'll have to travel over to one of the major cities, because Monmouth isn't really the place for that.
