    College is funny in that until you are in it you don't quite realize that this category isn't going to be as impactful as you first imagined (at least, that's my opinion on it all).There are a lot of events put on by Calvin, a lot of concerts that come through, and a lot of events the dorms themselves put on, so I would say there is a lot of opportunity for one to find fun in many places, and I would personally recommend finding a club you enjoy. There are many clubs as well, and opportunities to start new ones are not hard to find. There is plenty to keep you busy when you aren't busy with college itself.

    There is an amazing climbing wall and fitness center on campus. Also, every weekend there are a ton of different activities to go to. Each basement in the dorms also has a fun hang-out place that you can go with friends.

    There is always something to do. Almost every weekend, there are floor dates where your dorm floor does an activity with a dorm floor of the opposite sex. Calvin also has several great concerts throughout the year, as it is able to attract high level groups due to it being located in Grand Rapids, the second largest metro area in Michigan. Grand Rapids also has many great things to do and places to see. If you are bored as a Calvin Student, then you are trying to be bored.

    Grand Rapids is AWESOME! Home of ArtPrize, too many local restaurants to count, dates along the river, and Eastown. It is rated one of the best places to live in America.

I myself like to hang out with friends, go to dorm activities and movies, sometimes just walk around and explore. I also bike with my roommate and go to the gym.

    Grand Rapids is a beautiful town that offers so many opportunities for fun! Great places to take dates, great places to hang as groups, Art Prize is an entire month of awesome activities all over the town. On top of that Calvin provides dorm activities every day, as well as campus wide activities every Friday and Saturday. There's never a dull moment and I guarantee you'll find SOMETHING to do every night if you step out of your room for ten minutes. Also, people here are very friendly and welcoming. If you are feeling like you have no one to hang with or eat with, all you have to do is pick a table, find someone you think is cute, say hello and you'll be welcomed to join their group nine times out of ten. That's the beauty of Calvin in a nutshell!
