    The surrounding city is pretty bland when comes to entertaining students. However, I have to give PSU Altoona the benefit in that it is easy to start or join clubs that relate to your major of interest. And for the incoming freshman the campus sets up many events through the semester to get you out and possibly meet some new and interesting people.

    When on campus, having a snack at Port Sky Cafe is fun with friends. It gives you time to communicate and socialize with students within your major or different from your major. Participating in clubs gets your involved in your college and/or major and can be very pleasing.

    Being from the city it was hard to try to find things to do but there are some things that are off campus. The school also does off campus activities.

    There are plenty of clubs based around video games, there are bowling, poker, and game nights. The busses take you to the local mall and movie theaters, and there are a TON of great restaurants in the area.

    Around campus i like to go to the gym and play basketball. Since it is in the mountains we get a lot of snow, so it is nice to go sledding on the nittany point hill. Then when the weather warms up I would go play football or soccer on the turf field.
