    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!)

    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.
