    There is always something going on. The SUB (Student Union Board) hosts 3 free events during each semester where there is food, crafts, entertainment, shows, and various activities. The school also has a cinema Thursday-Sunday in the math building. Its free to attend and snacks are available for purchase. The movies shown are usually movies that have been in theatres sometime in the past year. Resident Halls and Houses are also always hosting events. There is constantly free food, music, activities, etc all around campus. Football and Men's Basketball games also get really intense and it should be on your bucket list as a student to attend a game or two. The gym also has free group fitness classes that are super fun to take with your friends. You have fun, pick up a few new skills, and stay in shape at the same time.

    Join clubs! I was a part of the Game Renegades and the Chess Club. Both were fun to attend and the people who run the clubs are amazing.

    At Iowa State, there are many things you can do for fun; this campus has two recreation centers on both sides of campus. There are always events, lectures, and shows going on around the campus. When someone has downtime, a fun thing to do is exploring the campus and meeting new friends.

    There's so much to do on campus! We have a crazy amount of clubs and activities, not to mention sporting events and homework help.

    This campus has over 800 organizations! There is one for everyone. Also, this campus is great for cruising around. So bring a skateboard, or even more popular, a long board, roller blades, and something even cooler that no one has probably seen before... Freeline Skates! Look them up, they are cool! Central Campus... there are always people there playing Ultimate Frisbee, Slacklining, or chilling in their hammocks. This place is the place to be because you feel so much life here! We also have bowling and an arcade at our Memorial Union. If you want to do something off-campus. We have a place called Perfect Games, a fun place to play Lazer-Tag, Bowling, and play arcade games and with pizza.

    There is Cyclone Cinema that provides free, new movies. Riding the CyRide lets you see the beautiful campus and keep you warm during the long commute. Discovering corners of the campus that looks like it has not been touched since the university was founded. Brainstorming with the engineering students on how to pick something apart and put it together again. My most favorite thing to do is to find a classroom on campus that is empty and has a projector. I hook up my computer and watch movies in the lecture hall until the class needs to be used again.

    There are always things going on in Ames and around campus. I enjoy seeing some of the performances that come to Stephens Auditorium. Students can get fairly cheep rush tickets the day of a show (often $10-$20) for some really great shows.

    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!)
