    ??? Food downtown was abysmal. There's a cigar store, if you're into that. The Harry Potter fest was cool (in September).

    On Campus: if you join a club there will be plenty of activity for you to do on campus, but if not you can pay attention to the campus newsletter to see what events are happening. There are usually several a month (typically student run). There are dances, some are good, some are terrible mixers. Depends on how you like to "party". Off Campus: 15-40 min away are large cities where MANY clubs, karaoke bars, restaurants, and other campuses. The other campuses provide the party scene while being able to escape from it when you return back to your campus.

    While at Mary Baldwin, I go to Split Banana whenever I have free time. I especially enjoy Split Banana because they take inspiration from a 50s diner.

    Not too many clubs or organizations, but you can spend lots of time in downtown Staunton or in one of the nearby towns.

    There are a lot of clubs on campus. Blackfriars which is a Shakespeare theater is a short walk from campus, as well as downtown Staunton. James-Madison college is 30 mins away and VMI is close by as well. The college has sports teams, as well as yoga and fencing.

    When I say it is a small school and a small campus, I mean it. A lot of the time, you've got to make your own fun around here. There is a party scene over at JMU that a lot of girls enjoy for the first few months here before that runs dry. I personally don't mind us being in such a small town. While some weekends can get boring, you're living down the hall from all your best friends, it isn't that hard to have fun. The school tries its best to entertain us with movie nights at the downtown theaters, or campus-wide events; you get what you put into it. You can have fun here if you try just a little

    The school has a few organizations that have events every now and then. The Baldwin Program Board has the best ones. They have an event every third Thursday that utilizes both movie theaters and plays their own selection which you can see for free with either free popcorn or drink. In the beginning of the year there are a lot more events, but as winter and spring come around it's more sparse. Finally, downtown has a few shopping options (like thrift stores and vintage stores) and some nice restaurants (some give discounts).
