  • Dec-04-2016 I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    Rutgers has a movie theatre, ice rink, and alot of other stuff. I don't think I'll ever need to leave campus because Rutgers doesn't have it.

    There's plenty to do for fun. So many clubs to join, events all the time, cool places to hang out on and near campus.

    JOIN CLUBS/ORGANIZATIONS! If you don't join, you will regret it. Find friends with the same interests as you! If you don't have time, at least attend RUPA's events! I attended an event with Brandon Stanton, the creator of HONY, and i loved it. But spots for RUPA events can fill up fast. So be quick and smart. Make friends in your major and/or dorm! I love my nursing class! They are amazing people I hope I can stay with for life. If you enjoy the party scene, go for it. It's not as nice as you would think it is. Some people I know regret going to a party.

    Aside from the parties Rutgers is known for, there isn't a lot to do. Clubs and sports are definitely a good choice. Mostly people go out to eat with each other on campus and around New Brunswick.

    The fun really never ends at Rutgers. Clubs you probably could never imagine existing are here, there are parties, there are plays you can catch, a movie theatre on campus, there are nature trails to walk, gyms to work out in, restaurants, shopping, games to watch, and events that are programmed by various organizations on campus that are either free or very inexpensive to attend. For example, fall harvest festivals, concerts, movie screenings, art exhibitions, and so many more. You will never be bored at Rutgers if you keep your eyes peeled for fun events that are happening on campus.

    I personally love being involved in clubs and sports. If there is one thing that Rutgers has a lot of, it's clubs and sports. From Quidditch to puppy club to anything you can imagine, we have it. Even if we don't, you can start a club yourself if you and some friends gather up and create it. I personally play volleyball for Rutgers and adore it. In addition I am very involved with the animal science department and spend a lot of my free time on the farm working in various animal barns. I personally also am a part of the Rutgers seeing eye puppy raising club where we train dogs to becoming guiding dogs for those who are visually impaired. Even when I am not at a club meeting, I am hanging out with my friends or even going to campus events.

    You have access to the train to go into the city or Philly. Also, you can just hang out with friends around RU. you have the Zimmerli Art Museum if that's what youre into, the different scenic places around RU like Passion puddle which is a great place to study for finals spring semester, etc. Don't forget RUPA who will be holding a lot of events so make sure you keep an eye on their facebook page. Additionally, other clubs, especially cultural clubs, will have different fun events too.Then there are the parties on the weekend nights from thurs-sat. There are countless of options.

    There are always parties on campus during the weekends. The football games are also a lot of fun. Also, many of the organizations on campus host events regularly including poetry events, movie nights, and parties at the student center.
