    The more you get involved at Penn State, the more fun there will be! Penn State's main campus is popular for its football games in the fall semester, which brings all students together to cheer and root for the team. Penn State has so many events, such as late night activities, free concerts, game nights and free movies! Even spending time with your friends makes campus life at Penn State worthwhile.

    Club Sports: PLAY ULTIMATE FRISBEE, it was the best decision I have ever made (besides coming to Penn State). It's the perfect mix of fun and competition. They don't cut, they just have a travel squad for Spring tournaments. In the Fall, everyone goes! It's like a sorority except instead of meetings we have practices. We still do volunteering, fundraising and partying. !!! (Also, commonly unknown fact: club sports at PSU aren't allowed to cut so if you don't want to play ultimate, play soccer or something!) Fraternities and Sororities: if this is your thing, go for it, I don't have a lot of experience in this area, but I know we have a frat or srat for everyone. Intramurals: It's super fun to grab a bunch of friends together and play a sport! You get a cool nike t-shirt if you win the whole thing! Go Downtown: Coming from a real city, don't get me wrong downtown State College is nothing like an actual city. But, it still has its own vibes. Super cute, super fun. Join a Club: join a club in your major!

    SPA, clubs, and the university itself organizes a ton of events. The HUB holds a lot of them.

    On the weekends there are lots of frats and parties around campus. Other than that I am in a few clubs, I like to watch movies, and window shop downtown with my roommates.

    there is always something to do. you can go to pegula ice arena and go iceskating. you can go to the gym and join a class. the university often holds events throughout the year, like various concerts, color runs, etc. during the fall you can go to beaver stadium for a football game. you can go to bryce jordan center for a basketball game. you can wander around downtown and explore the unique shops and eateries located there.

    what is there not to do here?! seriously, i feel like 4 years isn't enough time to tackle all the great things psu has to offer. for starters you should go to every single football game and tailgate for them. football saturdays are what penn state students dream for over the summer. you can also get into greek life, which has many benefits while in college and when you graduate. joining a club or sport is another option at penn state. you can literally create your own club too, just find about five members and a club advisor! everyday there seems to be some sporting event going on so you will always have something to do. the social life usually starts up on thursday nights, but if you're a true psu student you know we can go out any night. (if we are finished with schoolwork)
