    Grand Rapids is a great city. It's small, but there's a lot going on. Dubbed "Beer City," Grand Rapids has not only bars, but also good food and a lot of live music options. We would go downtown to ice skate in the winter and swing dance in the summer. The Michigan lakeshore is less than an hour away from Calvin, so that's another nice option.

    Calvin has over a hundred different clubs and sports teams to get involved with. Not to mention any Calvin versus Hope sporting event is always a good time. There are intramurals for those who want to continue playing their sport without needing to put in as much time and commitment, as well as highly recommended rock wall open to beginners or experts everyday. With the beautiful campus Calvin provides, a simple walk in the nature preserve is always enjoyable in every season.

    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.
