    JOIN A CLUB! go to the games! Not just the football games but basketball etc. Go to the movie nights, comedy nights, book events, concerts. They're tons of music festivals near by. The mall, parties (mostly frat parties, need to know a member to right in most and be friends with a member to stay after false shut downs) Just get involved , make some friends, and anything you do together turns into a night of fun.

    At Sacramento State University, there are lots of things you can do for fun. Many people like to explore other places around the campus because they are so focused on their major building, that they don't know what else is around. There is also a place called the Well and there is tons of professional work out equipment for any student of Sacramento State. Close by is the American River that most students like to hike along with friends, and when the weather outside gets cold, many events happen inside the Student Union which keeps us busy as well.

    UNIQUE is always having some type of event on campus. They have movie nights a lot and they do other fun stuff. Most of the on-campus social activities are geared more towards the students that live on or near campus but anybody can go to any of them. If you're above 21, there are some great bars and clubs just a 15 minute drive away in Downtown Sacramento. Sacramento is the Farm to Fork capital of the country, so there are lots of fresh and tasty food options around with plenty of variety. There's something for everyone. For under 21 entertainment, there's a couple bowling alleys nearby and a bunch of movie theaters and lots of great parks. The American River Bike Trail borders campus and stretches all the way from Downtown Sacramento to Folsom Lake if you're into bike riding. If you really want to go out and try something new or fun, San Francisco and its vibrant nightlife is just two hours away to the West, South Lake Tahoe where you can enjoy a nice day on the lake and maybe do some boating in the warmer months or go skiing/snowboarding in the winter, is just two hours away to the East, Apple Hill is a local favorite that's not too far to the East. The Sacramento Kings (National Basketball Association) and the Sac Repbulic FC (United Soccer League Pro) are both here, the latter playing their home games quite close to Sac State and those games are always a blast to go to, wether you love sports or not. The River Cats are over in West Sacramento, and they're the minor league affiliate of the San Francisco Giants of Major League Baseball. Those games are very fun to go to.

    There's sports games to go to and events to attend plus the college is right on the American River so there's lots of nature to explore.

    Sacramento is not exactly a super fun place to live but there are ways to make it better. You can spend time participating in different clubs and sororities/fraternities, there are free movies and other kinds of free events on campus, and The Well is a good place to go for students to go exercise, play sports, do dance fitness and even go rock climbing.

    Go to the comedy shows! They have really good comedians come by the school all the time and from what I hear in my near-by apartment the sports are a blast. If you are really feeling up for the task try out Sacs climbing wall. If you are bored of campus look around at the city! There is tons to do from laser tag to eating a two pound omelet.

    Since I am a single parent with a full time job while going to school here, I do not have an opportunity to partake in the many campus activities I see advertised. I have seen the Well which is a beautiful facility, and something to use and take advantage of.
