    what not to do for fun. fdu's metropolitan campus is located just a few short minutes away from new york city, there are also plenty of places to go around the teaneck/hackensack area. there are bowling places, dance studios, art studios and a whole lot of other things to do.

    There are many different clubs and activities on campus. It may be difficult to attend some club meetings; however this should not be a problem as most clubs understand this. There are multiple events that go on weekly so there is always something to do. Since FDU is very close to New York City, one could take a bus, train, or even drive into the city to have some fun. Public Safety is always available if you have any questions on how to get to the city and which method of transportation is best to take. FDU also will sell tickets to events, such as broadway shows and sporting events, for a very cheap price. You should go early to purchase the tickets as they sell out quickly. Once you purchase a ticket, FDU provides the transportation to go to NYC and to come back. FDU is a dry campus, regardless of whether or not one is 21 or older. There is a bar near campus and many students go there on Thursdays to have a fun time. The only catch to this is that when coming back to campus, one must attempt not to appear intoxicated, due to the fact that it is a dry campus.

    Students can hop on a train or bus and go to New York City. Students can walk or drive to Garden State Plaza or The Shops at Riverside. Students can walk along the park trails. Students can visit various shops in both Teaneck and Hackensack.

    There are so many clubs on campus that you could join. The school also buys tickets to Broadway shows every semester and you get very good seats for very low prices, but you have to buy right away because they sell out pretty fast. You also get tickets to sports games and other events for very cheap or no cost at all - you would just have to register. Also, if you are in the Honors Program, the directer buys tickets to every event and gives them away to the students for free.

    For fun I go to the Fitness Center and exercise and play basketball. Most of the time I spend my time with the women's basketball team at practice or recording games as a manager.

    There's a fitness center located here for anyone in their free time to shoot basketballs, play some pool, work out, study, and overall just have a fun time and relax with all your friends there. There are many clubs as well as intramural activities opened to anyone who's willing to enjoy the college experience and meet new friends along the way. There is a restaurant called Jeepers and it just a place to hang out with friends, relax, have some hot meals and enjoy the college life.

    The activity level at this school is at a all time high. You can never have anything to do at Fairleigh Dickinson University.

    FDU is right outside of New York City. Manhattan is always a great time!

    You can join a club like other colleges but there is not really anything to do around the town. You would need a car to go to the movies at the mall. (It is open on sundays) but not the rest of the mall.
