    The HUB provides many activities you could do especially for Friday nights and weekends. You could also go to Downtown or join any club based on your interests. Believe me, when I say your interests, there are basically everything. You name it, and there are they.

    Attend at least one football game to experience Happy Valley's school spirit and expansive tailgating. Hockey games also rock the student section. Join the gym to release stress and take care of yourselft. Join a club to challenge yourself with something you've never done before for well-balanced 1st year experience.

    We're surrounded by farms, and are in a valley. How is that not fun? In order to have fun, join clubs and meet new people, especially upperclassmen.

    Penn state seems to offer lots for every type of student. The list of clubs was endless, and they even encourage you to start your own if it's not already offered! They also offer various levels of select sports, like inter-murals. If actually playing sports isn't for you, then maybe watching will be! The student section was amazing and very impressive, and looked like a great thing to be a part of. Penn state also had three gyms, to keep in shape.

    There is so much to do here and you will never be at a loss trying to find something to do. Ever weekend, numerous activities, such as crafts and movies are held at the student activity center. This is always a good time to make new friends! In addition there are many things to do outside of campus as well. You can hike Mount Nittany for the first time and see the beautiful sunrise on top of that mountain or you can go bowling with your friends. Here at Penn State, there is nothing you can't do for fun, only stuff you haven't done before.

    It's Penn State, a party school, what do you think? haha but really there's so much more to do than that. Each floor will have meetings that will give you the opportunity to know your dormmates. You can skate at the Pegula Ice Rink, go to football games, play intramural or club sports, go to your club's socials, go shopping downtown, ect.

    FOOTBALL GAMES ARE SO MUCH FUN! There are also a handful of concerts and celebs that are brought in for a fun Friday night. Penn State is kind of it's own little town, so whether you find it fun to people watch (especially in the morning after parties� the walk of shame is just so funny) or rather be on the other side and go to the parties, there are plenty of things to do on and right around campus.
