    there is ping pong and pool tables in the stu (aka the student union). there are comedians and other entertainers that come every week. the performances are on little flyers you can pick up at the front desk in d hall. if an event is student sponsored, then it is announced through those little flyers, pinups on the boards in d hall, posted on yikyak, or there will be tents on brock commons that tell you about what's going on.

    There are many things to do for fun, it just depends on where your taste lie. If you are a sports fan, an athlete, an artist or an actor there is always something to keep you entertained. I joined a sorority, and we are involved in community service.

    Farmville is a small town, but Main Street has a bunch of cute little shops and cafe's students can visit. High Bridge Trail is a pretty nature trail. There is also a bowling alley. The library also has projectors students can rent, so they could have a movie night in the dorm.

    There are many clubs and other organizations for students to join. They can meet new people and find things to do together. The local fraternities often host parties with dancing and alcohol.

    There are many different events going on every month. There is the famous weekly letter from Jim Pearsons that everybody knows and it always gives you a list of things going on that week. Of course, the best thing is Oktoberfest and Spring weekend. It has music, and booths to visit from different campus organizations and groups. Other then campus events, there is always the local bar 202, famous Thursday night at El Patron or other small places to visit during the week.

    Don't let the small size of Farmville or Longwood discourage you. Stores are available throughout Farmville. Also, there's a bowling alley available and a movie theater off campus. There are plentiful clubs and organizations throughout the school - you just have to be proactive in searching for them. If there is nothing else you can find to do, then there are plenty of volunteering opportunities. Longwood almost always has something going on, there's no reason to stay idle on campus if you're not studying or not in class.

    I go bowling at Main Street Lanes every Thursday on college nights. We also go to the Student Union which is open until 12 am which is quite convenient come time to study. Sure there's parties on the weekends but some of the best times are shared with people in your room just having chill time.
