    There are a wide variety of activities available at Carlow University. Clubs often host events and every month bingo is played and it always draws in a large crowd. There are also group outings to enjoy things going on around Pittsburgh with a group and transportation. RA's also make sure to host a variety of events throughout the month. This has included food nights, craft nights, and movie nights amongst other things.

    Being in Oakland is the best opportunity because there is so much to do. You have other schools right down the street so their are many people to become friends with. Also, there are many shops and food places to enjoy.

    No, this is not a party school (sorry!). But, you're in the middle of Oakland. There is so much to do there!! All you have to do is walk down Fifth Ave or Forbes Ave and go exploring! Oakland has a great variety of attractions (museums, stores, etc.) and a HUGE variety of food!! Plus the buses run all day and can take you anywhere. I LOVE the Pittsburgh area. There are so many different things to do here (for me and for my 3 year old and her 9 year old sister). All you have to do is Google Pittsburgh events or activities or free Pittsburgh activities and you will find 100's of things to do. There are always festivals and different attractions to keep things exciting! Also there is access to gyms and even a relaxation room!!!

    The Campus Activities Board plans a lot of fun events on and off campus so there is always something to do or look forward to. The big event of the spring is Spring on the Green which is a carnival-type event with games and prizes and is a great way to meet people. In the commuter lounge there is a pool table/ping pong table for everyone to use and also a huge flat screen where a lot of students gather to watch big games.

    What NOT to do for fun? You're in the heart of Pittsburgh. There are museums, libraries, other universities, and plenty of other things to walk to; and Carlow itself has, on campus: a theatre, a gym, a pool (though I'm hydrophobic, so I won't be taking advantage of that), computer labs, a nice library, free wifi, places to hang out, and activities constantly being planned for the students. The whole place is just full of life and full of things to do.
