    truthfully, Nevada doesn't have a whole lot to offer in they way of being a college town. Thankfully, Cottey brings on entertainers, movies, speakers and other activities to the campus as well as offering outings to places like Joplin and Kansas City.

    While many girls classify Nevada as a small town, there is still plenty to do here. There are several organizations on campus that keep activities going on campus and the town of Nevada has events now and then, not to mention, we are only a short drive from Joplin.

    This depends on every student. I come from a small town and therefore have no problem dealing with the fact that most of our entertainment is going to walmart to check out guys. There are ways to make entertainment. If you like nature, there is a lot of it around us. There are a ton of clubs on campus, so get involved in those. The school also offers a number of off campus trips to places like Kansas City and Joplin to go to the mall, plays, performances and other things like that. On campus, we have a number of professional performers and speakers who come on weekends. All performances are free to students. For those who want to party, there is a college about an hour away with fraternity houses where they go to. Cottey does have a dry campus. Finally, Cottey has a number of traditions that date back roughly eighty years that are a lot of fun and keep a number of the students involved on campus.

    There are a bunch of things you can do for fun on campus and off-campus. On campus there are activities or events that occur each month that is free of charge to all students and these events/activities range of guest speakers, bands, performances, plays, shows, etc. There is also other types of fun that campus organizations/clubs organize for everyone such as raves, dances, etc. Also, you will find other things to do on campus with your suitemates or friends like watching movies, play games, pranks and other things that will bond you with others. For off-campus there are trips to the malls near the college and festivals, etc and students go visit other colleges nearby for parties or meeting other college students. Cottey girls also go to the walmart and hang out there or in other places around the college. You can always go to the parks in town or the shops and students like to explore the town as well.

    Like I said, you have your own mini-family. Mine liked to spend time together, whether watching movies, making crafts, or building forts. There's always something to do around campus, and it's always free to students: speakers, games, and music.
