    Everyone gets along well so activities around campus are entertaining. There are many clubs to join and people to meet. Boston is also less than an hour away for a great getaway.

    Having fun is not hard, despite the way we all complain about it. Many houses on campus (we don't have Greek Life, but we do have theme houses that throw great parties) throw parties on the weekends, but there are other ways to have fun, too. There are always movies put on by BAACHUS (a group which promotes staying sober), and there are often large dances or fun activities.

    Look into events to do around or in Norton. Also, Boston and Providence are both thirty minutes away.

    There is not a great deal to do on campus or around town, but if you take the free bus that goes from campus to the MBTA station, then you can go directly to either Boston or Providence. There are events on campus when the weather is good, but taking the train is the best way to get to the mall, movie theaters, restaurants, and other forms of leisure. The bus to the train station is free of charge for students, and they offer a discounted taxi occasionally that will take students to shopping centers for a very low price.

    We're lucky to be located between two well-known cities: Boston, MA and Providence, RI. There is easy access to those hotspots from on campus, and the opportunities for fun in those cities are endless. However, every weekend, there are cool events happening. Keep an eye out for advertisements posted literally everywhere to turn for the upcoming weekend's adventures. There are also events happening throughout the week to be aware of.

    Get involved!!!!!! Honestly, there's not too much going on on most weekends on campus so getting involved in clubs is a great way of keeping busy. You can also head into Boston or Providence for the day.

    There are parties most weekends, on campus at houses and some off campus. The off-campus parties are more for upper classmen and require a ride/dd which is sometimes hard to find. If you don't want to party, there are sober events every weekend such as movie screenings in auditoriums and random events that various clubs and groups at school put on. There is something for everyone.

    There are lots of activities to do and we are close to Boston or Providence if you want to go explore! Northampton is also a great place to visit.
