    There is a lot of stuff to do for fun on and off campus. I'll focus on on campus for this review. There is a thing called Late Night every Saturday that's free for Ball State students. It is a huge party on campus and it is so much fun. There's usually free food and a TON of other things to do like putt putt, bowling, escape rooms, karaoke, bubble soccer, DIY projects, video games, face painting, mechanical surfing, it just varies from week to week there is always something new. There is a state-of-the-art Rec center with great equipment but you can also go there to play ping-pong, indoor soccer, swim, there's even a rock climbing wall. There is always something going on on campus. Always. It is easy to get involved. There are so many organizations that you can join and everyone is so welcoming! Some cost money to join but others are 100% free. Many halls will host game nights and other things. There's usually outside bonfires and stuff when the weather is nice, oh and outdoor movies as well. If the weather isn't nice there is a movie theatre that shows current movies on Friday nights for free. There's also a free art museum and planetarium shows on campus if you like that sort of thing. I could go on and on about all the different things there are to do. It's great!

    I was apart of the Ball State Code Red Dance Team so I always loved to attend sporting events even the ones I was not dancing at. The atmosphere and school spirit at the events was always exciting and fun. During Welcome week and Homecoming week so many activities are going on that you have tons of choices of fun things to do. I always enjoyed going to school musicals and plays put on by your fellow Performing Arts majors. They offer tons of intramural sports that lots of people get involved in. While living in the dorms the RA's always make plans for the dorm as a whole or your floor to attend different events or just to go to dinner together, its a great way to meet more people and get involved.

    There is always fun to be had. Ball State has many affordable or free cultural events. There is a lovely art museum on campus. As a college student you are hopefully able to demonstrate some creativity as you find wholesome ways to spend your time.

    The main thing there is to do for fun is Late Night which happens every Saturday night. There are different themes every time and they have different activities like face painting, bowling, movies, and special activities that change each time.

    For fun I like to hang out with my friends, walk around campus, and go to some events. There are plenty of events around campus to go to. Mainly being with your friends and meeting new people is the best part because those are the people you will be making life long memories with.

    Muncie is not a terribly big city so there are limited places to go for a fun time. However, near Ball State campus, students frequently go to restaurants like the famous Insomnia Cookies (which sells deliciously right out of the oven cookies and also delivers to your room). On campus, there are many clubs, sporting events, an art museum, a planetarium, musical events like plays and recitals of all different sorts. The recreation center is another way to go have fun with your friends and play games like ping pong, volleyball, basketball, racquetball and many more! Also, every Friday night the school plays new movies free of charge for students.

    There always seems to be something going on--concerts, plays, dorm and floor activities, paint wars, speakers--you name it, we got it! There are also so many campus activities to get involved in, so basically you're never bored!

    Attend on-campus events or hang out with friends. There isn't much to do in Muncie. Indianapolis is an hour away and offers more shopping, dining, and entertainment options.
