    Parties are great. There's a very vibrant night life. There are also many club, intramural, and varsity sports teams. Our other clubs are also amazing in general. I don't know many campuses that have radio stations, television stations, a very active newspaper, a top ranked hacking team, etc. I can go on and on. There's something for everyone and if you can't find it, then start a new club and you'll garner interest fast.

    There are loads of clubs, sports, and activities happening on campus. Troy also has fun stuff to do - I would ask an upperclassman about though. It's also a short bus ride to Albany.

    There is so much to do outside of academics. If you can think of it, there is a club or activity for it and if not then it can be made. I am constantly busy doing things for various clubs.

    There are on-campus movies every Friday and Saturday. There are several parties each weekend - frats take turns throwing parties so they each have a decent amount of people at them. There is also a Playhouse, an improv group, several dance groups, and different musical performances throughout the semester. The bus can be taken to Crossgates Mall, and freshmen halls organize different trips including busses to NYC, or apple/pumpkin picking in the fall.
