    There is plenty to do for fun, I don't know what some people are talking about! Sam really is a party school if you know where to go or the people that are attending these events! There are many kickbacks (I'm pretty sure everyday). if you just show up at the Villas (a popular after party apartment) then there will always be something there and friendly faces to invite you in (in a non creepy way). There is also The Fox (The Jolly Fox Club) and Nasties (Shenanigans) which are two clubs that I just gave you the nicknames to. I probably went once or twice but that is just me, I know lots of people that enjoyed going there almost every weekend. Besides parties there are many clubs and organizations on campus that throw many events for you to attend throughout the week. Also for fun here is a tip especially in the summer, if you are a freshman and living on campus, go to a random apartment (connections, encore, villas) and just swim in their pools! It is a great and simple way to make older friends that have connections! (no pun intended)

    I traditionally hang out with the other students n my residence hall. We hang out downstairs and play ping-pong in the living area or we go to one of our rooms and play video games. We sometimes do crazy things like play freeze-tag outside in the mall area at two in the morning. If you choose to, you can also go to one of the local clubs or maybe to the movies, if you have the means to get there.

    There is always something going on, on campus. Huntsville is small but its not hard to find something fun to do. the movie theatre is only $5 cash.

    There is always something fun to do around campus! Many organizations put on events such as movie and a dinner, information programs, block parties, bon fires, and much more! And you can't forget game day tailgating!

    It would depend on what you are into. I've heard that the local bar called Shenanigan's is a great hangout.

    There are always activities to do around campus.If none of those seem fun, most things around town are in walking distance.
