    You can lay out on Kappa field and watch shooting stars, play beach volleyball, enjoy various activities/sports at the waterfront, hangout on the beach by Kappa field, and just chill with friends!

    There are so many things to do for Fun. Eckerd College has a Waterfront where you can rent (student do not pay) paddle boards and kayaks, you can go to camping trips or just go for a swim. We have our own private beach where you can relax by reading a book or tan. There are more than 100 clubs that you can be part of and different school organizations will have activities ready for the week and weekends. We have our own concert where last year they brought T-Pain!

    Since we are right on Boga Ciega Bay we have a waterfront program where you can rent out kayaks, and paddle boards and take them into the bay! We have tons of dolphins and manatees that live and swim right in the bay as well! We are also 40 minutes from Tampa so there are many things to do in the city!

    You can rent boats, paddleboards, windsurfers, and a bunch of other equipment and go out on the water. You can hang out at the beach. There are activities and parties all the time. You can just swipe your card at the basketball court 24 hours a day and the lights will come on and you can play. They had a nice soccer field. The gym was a little small, but fine. Our guide said he didn't have a car, and he didn't have any issues, but I would think you would want one. There is so much to do in the area (if you had any free time left) like take a road trip to Disneyworld or go to St. Pete beach, or visit other parts of Florida. There are so many things to do, I think the hard part would be forcing myself to study.
