    Head to Chinatown. Visit other cities nearby. Take a look around the Bronx Zoo. There's so much to do in New York City, and it doesn't take much effort to find something amazing to do.

    Again, it's New York! If there's anytime away from homework, the students have said there's never a boring moment in the city.

    It's New York City. Things that are the greatest in the world here: museums, theaters, bookstores, parks, movie theaters, restaurants, music venues, libraries, galleries, etc. Consume culture, wander beautiful city streets for hours. However, you will also spend a lot of time not even going anywhere because you will be so amazed by the wonderful people you will meet that you will just talk to them for hours on end.

    If you can't figure out something fun to do in New York City, you probably should rethink a commitment to living here for four years. NYC isn't for everybody.

    Get out and see NYC!!! Join a club, start a club, play video games with friends, go to plays, go to cultural events, go to parties. You have the college experience at your finger tips and you have NYC. Seriously. There is no reason to be bored.

    Student Organizations throw parties more so at the beginning of the semester and near the end of the semester. Students can go sight-seeing (at the Brooklyn Bridge, in the Met, etc.) or peruse through nearby Harlem (yes in Harlem, but during the daytime, as I did). Students (of legal age) can visit 1020 or Mel's for a drink and hangout.

    You're in New York City! There's always plenty to do. Columbia's in a great place, close enough to the big attractions so that it's convenient to get to them, but far enough away where the noise isn't distracting. The main campus is located between Broadway and Amsterdam, so there are all kinds of stores within walking distance. The 116 Broadway subway stop is right in front the school gates, so transportation's super convenient. Times Square is only a 20 min subway ride away. Museum Mile, on 5th avenue, is only a 30 min bus ride away. The school offers discount tickets to many of the shows, plays, and concerts currently showing, and your student ID lets you get into many museums and similar places for free. There are also lotteries for free tickets to some of these shows. For example, I won a free ticket to see Cinderella on Broadway. If you don't feel like going into the city, there's also frequent shows and events hosted on campus by different student performance groups, like concerts by different singing groups, and cultural festivals hosted by the different cultural associations.

    Various student performances and activities on campus as well as everything possible to do in New York City, visit Times Square, shop in 5th Avenue, look at the art in the Met, see a Broadway show, or just people-watch from a coffee shop window.
