    There are always events going on on campus, especially during free hour on Mondays and Wednesdays. Everything from self-defense classes to educational speakers to club activities are offered here at some point during the year. There are a ton of clubs to join and several Club Days hosted for students to check them out covering a wide range of topics and interests. There are often free student recitals in the Aaron Copland School of Music during the week, and some bigger performances like operas, musicals, and plays in Colden Auditorium. There is an AMC movie theatre a short bus ride away from campus in Fresh Meadows where students can get discounted movie tickets if they show their student ID, and many good restaurants in the area; Gino's Pizza on Kissena Blvd. is a popular destination if you need a quick meal. It takes only about an hour to get to Manhattan if you take the bus to the F subway on Hillside Ave or the LIRR at Jamaica Station, and there are two malls not too far away from campus, Queens Plaza and Sky View. There is always something to do.

    The school has a lot of activities throughout each semester and there's almost always something going on. It's best to explore around campus on your own or with a friend and see what's going on. Definitely join a club to make friends, play games, etc. There is a festival that the school holds on one day during the fall and spring semester (Fall Fest and Spring Fest, respectively) where there are a ton of FREE things to do.

    There is always something happening in the Student Union building (where all the clubs are) and check out notice boards on other campus buildings to see what interests you. Or if you just like peace and quiet, the library is always open till late. there are also tennis courts and may be other courts i didn't see yet (it's a pretty big campus by foot) for those who like sports. Oh, and did i mention the gym? It is HUGE, probably because of the indoor pool (haven't been inside that) but I'm sure it has other things. And if you like theater, this is your time to see famous Broadway actors perform for only ten to twenty bucks! I've attended some of the plays and trust me- they are GOOD.

    A lot of people play pool and ping pong in the patio room near the dining hall which is fun. The Hillel always has events going on; bingo night, karoke night ect. At the dorms, there are some movie/game/study nights in the flex space. Not many students participate though. For the most part, everyone just goes NYC. It's kind of a hassel to get there though - its a bus and subway ride to get to Manhattan. It takes about 40 min to get to Midtown by public transportation.

    Join a club and/or organization, they offer so many it's hard not to. Do some community service. Try out for a sports team or just keep in shape by taking advantage of Queens' gym and indoor swimming pool.

    I saw a playground in the campus. There was also open spaces where I could sit and enjoy the sun. I also like the fact that there is a library. During my free time when school starts in fall, I could go to the library and have fun. I love reading very much.
