    Clubs, sports, and other school held activities throughout the year are great opportunities for fun. There are several theater productions and lectures held also. There is a shopping mall walking or biking distance from the school (several blocks), and another shopping mall about 8 minutes by car ride.

    There are some good hang out spots on campus - dorm common rooms, Montag, the Bistro, and, on sunny days, outside by the millstream. There are lots of events and shows that go on particularly on weekends that tend to be pretty fun.

    The campus is in downtown Salem, so there are many restaurants within walking distance. If you want to get the most out of Willamette, it is suggested to get involved with clubs or greek life. It is a great way to meet new people and have fun doing so!

    For fun I participate in outdoor program activities where we go hiking and camping. If Im not too busy on the weekends I will hang out with my friends and go to close off campus house parties or watch movies in the dorms.

    For fun, attend some of the many campus events we have! Also, kids can always go off campus. Portland is not too far away and is accessible by train if one does not have a car!

    There are some small house parties and these often are focused around a certain interest, such as poetry readings. There are really exciting speakers, comedians, and theater shows going around campus, just keep updated and you will always have something to do.

    There's really not much to do in Salem, OR, so be prepared for that. WU student's still find ways to have fun though, and the train that goes to Portland is close by.

    Go to Portland for basketball games, intramural sports, and hang out on campus. Always something going on around campus.
