    There's usually something going on, but you're going to want to make some friends pretty quick in order to have fun at the activities.

    To be up front, Eastern is NOT a party school. It's a dry campus, so if your looking for that your best options are to go off campus or to UConn, which is only 15 minutes away. If your not a big partier however, Eastern provides a lot of on campus activities every weekend, and for what its worth they really are fun if you go and get involved.

    The campus activity board (which I am a part of) puts on around 90 events a semester for students. Other clubs and organizations also put on events, so you're looking at about 100+ events a semester. There's a movie every Tuesday. There are also shuttles to a strip mall, and walmart. Within walking distance there are small stores, such as a cupcake place, and many restaurants.

    There are a lot of clubs that pay for on and off campus events. This is one of the best ways to make new friends and enjoy yourself.

    Every third Thursday from April to September Main Street comes ALIVE with festivities for the whole community. The short walk to Dairy Queen is always a favorite from September-November and April-May when the location is open. Year round activities include adventuring to Thread City for Breakfast, Cafe Mantic for lunch, The Brewery for Dinner, and A Cupcake for Later as a early dessert. All four places are located on Main Street. Plus a campus shuttle runs every evening Monday-Friday to Walmart and the East Brooke Mall.

    Eastern offers several clubs at no extra cost. Meetings are usually weekly and club members develop close relationships with one another. There are several service learning and community service opportunities, which allow the student to become connected to the community. I have volunteered at local schools and homeless shelters, and the experiences were great. Eastern hosts discussions in the Student Center which are usually on very interesting topics, such as political events or sexuality. Class trips are planned, such as day trips to the Museum of Modern Art or environmental clean up in other countries. There are several movie nights and coffee houses for creative writing or music events. Eastern's theater students usually perform two plays a semester and do small events in between. Famous musicians visit Eastern a few times each semester.

    Every week there is some sort of special event held in the BTR room. There are comedians who stop by and theres also parties that take place. But the campus is very lively ecspecially when it's warm out.
