    Downtown Bellingham is really fun, and tuition comes with a bus pass so its really easy to get around! The underground coffee house is really fun as well. They have open mic night every week.

    Downtown Bellingham is fantastic, however, dangerous at night. Always travel in pairs and look out for one another. I have two tattoos from a shop in downtown Bellingham that have changed my life. I had more fun and experienced much more downtown, rather than at school.

    I like to sit in the sun and take in all the beauty around me, or go sit in the underground coffee house and read or meet new people

    I play catch with friends and go to other dorms for fun. I did go to volleyball and basketball games while they were playing. Don't forget that this school doesn't have a football team! It does mean that we focus on the smaller sports though.

    In the gym there's weights, items available for renting (basketballs, mats, tools, etc.), rock climbing center, and a swimming pool. Not to mention plenty of extra recreational groups/activities (yoga, etc.) to explore. Great, large, well kept track and field as well. If the gym is boring, the downtown area and bay-side are only a half hour walk away from campus.

    Bellingham as a town is really outdoor-sy. Surrounded by mountains and forest, there is plenty of skiing, snowboarding, hiking, camping, and rock climbing to be found. The Arboretum is a giant hill right behind the campus with lots of trails and places to explore. Downtown Bellingham is a short walk from campus and has several shops and stores to check out. The public transportation is excellent, and you can get basically anywhere in the city or surrounding counties by bus. There are also some great places around Western to just hang out with friends and play games.
