    Frankly there aren't a whole lot of things to do here. For under 21, your best bet are dorm parties, tailgating, frat parties, going to see the movies, eating out, going shopping, exploring campus, going to UAB events, hanging out with friends. For over 21, all of the above in addition to going to the bars.

    I am not your typical college student so my idea of fun is very different from the norm. On a warm, sunny day, I enjoy sitting down by the Cedar River, laying on the grass and listening to music. It is relaxing for me and being outdoors in nature is very calming. In the evening, I like to head over and watch whatever movie is playing that evening, complete with popcorn. Sounds boring from the usual college student, but I don't drink or party and I am focused on homework and getting my education.

    The University Activities Board (UAB) provides a lot of fun events for students that occur almost daily to give students something to do around campus. They provide a wide variety activities ranging from movie nights to painting to even playing with therapy dogs! Around other areas of campus, you can spend your Saturday in Spartan Stadium in the student section during football games, or you can attend open skating at Munn Ice Arena on certain dates. Take a walk through the many gardens on campus, or take a walk along Grand River Ave to check out all the restaurants and shops. With a campus the size of MSU, there is always something to do.

    Grand River is located right next to campus and has a ton of shops, restaurants, and bars. The Meridian Mall is a short bus ride away and offers a variety of stores and restaurants. Our UAB group offers free movies to students in some of our big lecture halls every weekend along with weekly activities like open mic night, arts and crafts, and special cafeteria events like A Night with Harry Potter and Holiday Dinners. Students can also attend any band performance for free at the music hall. UAB brings in artists throughout the year that you can get discounted tickets to go see like Panic at the Disco. There is always something to do on this campus.

    There is always something going on on campus. The union hosts a different event almost every night. This includes craft nights, free bowling, performances and other fun and informative events. Sporting events are a huge part of campus culture no matter what season it is. Free movies are played in wells hall on the weekend and there is even a planetarium that puts shows on every weekend for a reasonable price (sometimes their even free!)
