    If you are a beach bum, this is the place for you. Even if you don't own a car, it is only a short 3 mile bike ride away. If you are a surfer, cocoa beach and Melbourne have some of the best waves on the east coast. Orlando is only 45 minutes away. Many students have annual passes to Universal or Disney and go frequently. All the clubs and bars are there too, if your into that kinda thing. There is a surprisingly large amount of rednecks in the area too, hailing from the Palm Bay area that love to take their trucks, ATVs and dirt bikes out to go offroad on the weekends.

    The campus is less than 10 miles from the beach, 1 mile from a golf course, and has game rooms in every dorm. There are several shopping districts and a mall which the campus trolley service delivers students to on Fridays. There are a variety of sporting activities with surprisingly Frisbee being the most popular. The library on campus has one of the largest nonfiction collections around, although the fiction is somewhat lacking. All the major research databases are free to students to use.

    Locally there is not a lot to do near campus. The beach is probably the best attraction that is within 30 minutes of the campus. Another fun place to visit nearby is the Andretti theme park. Those willing to travel an hour or two can reach Orlando, which has several great places to eat, visit, and have fun.

    The beach: that's a no-brainer. You can go shopping, see a movie, go out to eat, play a sport, walk around downtown....If ever you feel like you want to go for a drive, you can drive to Cocoa, Orlando, Viera, Rockledge, or another nearby place. There's this little place between Melbourne and Orlando called Harmony, and I know at some point (I think maybe January or February) they have this festival (Dark Sky Festival) where all the lights go out and telescopes are set up in a clear spot near some horse stables....communal star-gazing. It's really quite wonderful. :) Personally, I just hang out with my friends. The majority of your fun isn't something you have to find. It's right in front of you, in the people you love and in yourself.

    On campus join a club; you'll make tons of friends to hang out with outside of classes. Off campus, there's the beach which is only a 10 minute drive. Otherwise, there's shopping, movies, bowling, and if you are willing to drive to Orlando there are clubs and even ice skating and DISNEY or SEAWORLD!

    Beach is so close. School typically has some on campus events every weekend. Also, Tampa and Miami are a little 2.5 hours away so if you have a car, those trips are manageable. Orlando is about an hour maybe less and people are always going there, so you should be able to get a ride and there is a lot to do there.
