    Make friends! We're kind of in the middle of nowhere, so unless you've got friends you're going to be rather bored. We spend a lot of time playing board games, video games, pool, ping pong, and many other things here in the Halls. There's also almost always some activity going on on campus that's loads of fun. We have comedians and all sorts of other performers at least monthly, as well.

    There's not much to do for fun everyday because of how small the campus is. Nothing out of the ordinary, anyway.You can go to Apex apartments when the others do on Thursdays and party there or you can play Wii in the dorm hall's lobby, or billiards or air hockey on the floor below. There's also a table tennis set, but that's in the gym building, which is on the other side of campus from the dorms. But if you like to work out, there's a lot of good resistance and cardio equipment to use even though some of it is outdated and broken. There's also a basketball court people sometimes use, in the same gym building.

    Get into a relationship where you hang out all day and every day. I hope you like videogames, scenic walks with yourself, or staring at all the closed buildings on campus at the most convenient hours for college students. They advocate a dry campus however to survive this place, you have no choice but to go to APEX and drink your liver to a bloody pulp just so you can sleep in all Saturday and sunday and hope you don't wake up before 1130am or you have to wait to even eat cafeteria food. Campus activities are there however, most are not worth going to unless it is bowling, the annual new York trip, the annual Hershey park trip, or if you go to Walmart in Hickville to watch the hillbillys buy generic everything. The Walmart is 10 minutes away however the bus driver tends to take 45 minutes and I do not understand why. you will also have no place to put your bags and you hear 7 different headphones blaring in a silent vehicle. Am I going to Walmart or am I going to prison in the incarceration bus? I honestly am so bored on this campus, if it wasn't for my girlfriend who lives around the area, I would have lost my crap by now. Unless you like playing videogames or going off campus to eat at a restaurant or get gas and say Hey, look at all that cow crap by the road, then look away from this campus.

    I hope you have money when you decide to come to this campus. You have to drive a minimum of 20 miles to get anywhere! The closest small (Chambersburg) is about 25 minutes away and there is not much to it. It's very small and the theater there only plays 3 or 4 movies at a time. The next closest mall (Hagerstown) is about 40 miles away. Although it a decent size, it is quite the drive. As a matter of fact, you will probably end up in Hagerstown for most of your fun. Besides shopping of going out to eat, there is not much to do. The campus does offer activities every week that you could participate in. The biggest one is a trip to New York City. It's only $10 for the transportation there and it is definitely a fun experience. However, once again, you have to have money.

    If your looking to have fun you can always visit your friends at there dorm room. You can also start your own campus club and if enough people join it could be established as a new campus club for whomever wants to join. You can also go to the library and use the computers for fun. Also the campus holds different activities and events that you could attend and in some cases they give out prizes
