    Travel around DC and explore! The Foggy Bottom campus is walking distance from the National Mall as well as Georgetown and the potomac river waterfront. Also going for a run through Rock Creek park or taking the metro down to the zoo is a great idea for students on a budget.

    There's lots of things to do for fun. First is the parties and nightclubs. Second, you can explore D.C. Also, there's lots of events that D.C. hosts (ex. Taste of D.C., Paint Party, etc) so if you look for things to do they're available.

    There are tons of things to do both on and off campus for fun. There are always events going on. If you like museums, the Smithsonian Museums are close by, there are lots of dance clubs, greeklife is also huge- so there's always a party somewhere- and tons of symposiums and other educational lectures on campus. What ever your interest is, I'm sure you will find it here.

    There are various things to do for fun on campus. There is a recreational fitness facility on campus called the Lerner Health & Wellness Center, in which students can work out in the Fitness Center, play basketball, soccer, badminton, squash, swim in pool, run track, etc. For campus nightlife, there are various Greek townhouses that provide parties and things to do for many students. Dorms are also areas in which students can create safe and healthy fun for themselves. Just off campus are bars and lounges such as McFaddens and Camelot for those older students who are eligible to access it. Beside partying, there is also great fun in taking a tour of nearby attractions such as the White House, Washington Monument, Lincoln Monument, National Mall, the Smithsonian Museum, Dupont Circle (many places to eat as well), and so on. The Woodling Zoo is also an area of fun. Prime areas such as U Street and Gallery Place-Chinatown are seen as the cultural centers of DC, where everything from restaurants to movie theaters to sports stadium (Verizon Center) are also available. Adams Morgan and Georgetown are also other prime areas in the city that provide fun for students outside of campus. DC nightlife is among the most varied in the country and many students never run of things to do for fun.

    It's DC! There are a million things to do within walking distance, and a billion more to find just a Metro ride away. GWU has all the best things about living in a city, mixed with all the great things about living on a college campus. There's so much to do and see, especially with the White House, the National Mall, and the Smithsonian Museums so close by.
