    I always volunteer,love helping others and just making people smile. Wilkes have a lot of activities as well,I try to attend most of them. The YMCA is also like my second home, I have fun but at the same time is a necessity.

    The campus is within walking distance of the movie theater and downtown Wilkes Barre. The school sells discounted movie tickets and gives out free bowling passes. The school itself always has something going on though. They have singers come perform concerts. They rent skating rinks out. Arts and crafts day, and so much more. They believe that students need a way to relax and that they're paying for that as well.

    the mall is within a 10 min. drive from campus and one can easily walk a couple blocks to the movie theater, or a little bit further to the bowling alley. the local YMCA has free admission for wilkes students and free classes like zumba or spinning classes, along with a pool and a full gym.

    The Wyoming Valley Mall, Movies 14, Wilkes-Barre Public Square, or my favorite a sunset walk along the bridge on campus that overlooks the Susquehanna River.

    Willkes Campus is close to the square (walking distances) where you can go shopping, the school bookstore, farmers market, Dunkin donuts, Boscovs, movies, and many food places where you can get discounts if you show your school ID.
