    Honestly the school offers a ton of on campus activities to do that is definitely worth going to. It's also a great opportunity to meet new people (everybody is way too nice here!)

    There are so many things you can do to have fun around this campus, I don't even know where to start! There are clubs, intramural sports, fundraisers, parties, greek life, etc. If you can't find something fun to do around here, then you must be a pretty picky person.

    I always go to Main Street in Ames if I'm bored, I can find neat places to study at like the Vinyl Cafe, or the Ames Public Library.

    Ames is a small town, so there's not a plethora of things to do, but since it's located in a small town there is plenty to do on campus. They have a bowling alley, movie theater on campus that shows movies for free and they are updated. If you like football or basketball there's always that as well. They have many opportunities for free fun at the Memorial Union so just stayed tuned!

    There are plenty of thing to do but I would recommend getting involved in a club. There are parties on the weekends, but I have never been to one so I cannot tell you what they are like. I often get a group together and we will watch a movie--either in the dorm or at the free Cyclone Cinema. The Student Union board also puts on a large event every once in a while. Students gather to play games, go to concerts or go bowling in the Memorial Union. That can certainly be a fun time.
