    What to do for fun? There is loads, whether its on campus or off! If you decide to get away from school, I recommend going to Universal Studios which is less than 30 minutes away by car. But if you cannot afford the ticket, I still recommend getting their to visit Citywalk. But if you would rather stay at the school, there is the weird theater festival and games you can go watch!

    I love to workout. I am involved in sports. I am a boxer in the boxing club. I am in ballroom dancing. I love to go to free screenings with friends and just hangout. I like to just hang out on campus because there is always something to do.

    Since it is in the San Fernando Valley the beach, mountains, or desert are all about an hour drive away so you can hit up any of those. Hollywood is also about a 45 minute drive that's always nice to check out.

    Go to the duck pond. They have a vending machine where for a mere quarter you can feed the many ducks and turtles they have there, or bring some bread from home and feed them all. If not share it with the squirrels.

    The gym offers many fun events. For those who like parties they offer a show every year where they bring DJs and have them play for the school the whole evening.

    There is not much to do in the Valley, you have to explore outside (mostly in Los Angeles) to find something fun. If you have a car, then you'll be good, if you don't, it will be more difficult to find something you like, but there are events like Basketball games, Matador Nights, and Big Show that really fun to attend.

    Get involved. Seek it out. Fun will not come to you at CSUN. You have to find the fun. Matador Nights- A pretty hilarious time. It could be called a carnival that takes itself way too seriously. The DJ's and games and food are all so underwhelming that it's worth it to pre game and head on in for maybe an hour and then leave. It's free so why not? Big Show- Our annual concert event. Cheap tickets, but usually no one interesting outside the realm of shitty electronic music or hip-hop. Outdoor Adventures- Shameless plug: I work here. We take students out on a variety of weekend and single day backpacking, camping, kayaking, rock climbing, and canoeing trips. We subsidize the prices so that it's cheap for students and we build these trips for beginners. It's all about introducing people to the great outdoors. We run about 40-50 trips a semester. It's one of the best things on campus. The Student Recreation Center- A really pretty design with poor space allocation. This is CSUN's Gym that they tell us not to call a gym. They play Top 40 music constantly but it's also a gym you're already paying for so it doesn't hurt to use it. There's a giant rock wall inside and it's great for first timers and for a bouldering sesh in between classes, but if you're an experienced climber you may be better off just heading over to Stoney Point down the road. The surrounding Northridge area consists of: Food Six Flags is about 20 minutes away. Downtown LA is cool I guess. You need a car for this though.
