    The mall is the only thing to do around Providence.

    For fun, there are many events that the campus holds for students but they are usually during afternoon classes. There are numerous clubs, bars( if you are of drinking age), and places to eat out. The city itself has numerous festivals and events so if you love to always be doing something, keep up to date with what's happening.

    Harborside is pretty quiet, but you can go to the mall downtown or go on a walk to Thayer Street. Thayer Street is famous for all the food activity.

    Hanging out with friends, Waterfire, concert at Lupo's or Dunkin Donuts Center, the mall, movies, and the theater are a few things to do in Providence. We are also about an hour away from Boston and three hours away from New York.

    Go to the clubs or bars downtown and enjoy the nightlife, go to events at the Dunkin' Donuts Convention Center, attend a show or play at one of the theaters in Providence, or take the RIPTA to the zoo or beach!

    Located in DownCity, there are tons of museums, clubs, parks and dining establishments around. The Providence Place Mall is also close by and on campus there are a few events planned throughout the school year. However, the size of the city means that a lot of things are outside of it which means utilizing the expensive public transportation or having a car. Everything in the immediate area aside from clubs close early.

    The wildcat center is fun if you like to play sports for challenge or for fun. They also have a gym on both campuses which are really fantastic.
