    Well I mostly hang out with friends in the lobby or in my room watching movies but the campus has plenty of activites to do for fun. A couple weeks ago I went to the theatre programs musical. I also went to an improv show for the on-campus improv troupe. I really enjoyed both and can't wait for there to be more shows to go to. There are also a lot of social club activities, social clubs are OBU's version of frats and sororities, they don't have their own housing but they do have some nice gatherings. There was also a Ball the other day. YES! A ball, like from cinderella! Super fun, and everyone got to get all dressed up. The campus has a lot of fun things to choose from.

    OBU is a gorgeous campus filled with trees, so many students love hammocking. OBU also has a lot of on-campus events, from concerts to dances to midnight breakfast. If you're looking for something fun to do, it is not hard to find an event going on.

    There are lots of things to do for fun at OBU. We always have events going on that are put on by clubs or the school as a whole. We often have concerts with people like NeedToBreathe or Switchfoot. We have lots of restaurants and places to hang out. A lot of students have fun at the Recreation and Wellness Center playing basketball, working out, or taking a group exercise class. Oklahoma City is only 30 to 45 minutes away, depending on where you are going. My friends and I will go up to the city for the weekend to go to the mall, go downtown,. or watch a movie.

    OBU does a fantastic job of making sure that there are always events for students to go to for a fun, relaxing time. Since Shawnee is a smaller town, it can be hard to find things for entertainment so it is great that there are so many options on campus. From intramurals to lip-sync competitons, it's hard to not have something to do!

    Fun? Ironically, Shawnee isn't much of a college town. We have a Starbucks, but even that closes early. We have loads of campus events that seem to be happening constantly, and when they aren't we are making our own fun. Most of our students get plugged into the community through various outlets which keeps us busy. Being a campus full of hipsters the activities usually consist of: antiquing/thrifiting, rock climbing, coffee, running, Lord of the Rings, coffee, the $2 theatre, and our downtown district.
