    There are so many options for people to let off some steam and have some fun. There are always events going on and off campus. There are several different hiking trails and parks within the area and there is always movies playing at the theater in the mall. For those who are 21 and over, there are several bars located on the Strip.

    SIUC is in a small town so coming from a big city it is hard to find much fun. However, there are always locally ran events on campus and around campus for literally every little thing you can think of. Every week there are different events happening and you can easily find something fun to do around town or in town. If you love the nature and wilderness then this college is definitely for you because there are so many different parks and wild life habitats to venture off into during any time of the day and year. Also, SIUC has so many RSOs (Registered Student Organizations) that go out and have fun on the weekends and hang out, so it is almost impossible to not have fun.

    There is a bowling alley and laser tag room at the student center, with bi-weekly movies playing there as well. There is disc-golf equipment set up on Thompson point and parties go on almost every weekend.

    Plenty of places to go, only if you have a car. The bus can take you to the mall, WalMart, movies, etc.

    Soooo much! Easier if you join clubs and have friends to invite you out, but even if you are just trying to get to know people just go to the gym and introduce yourself to someone!

    On Tuesdays they have karaoke night at Hangar 9 and on thursday it's dollar night at calli's. Besides that there's nothing really fun to do here in Carbondale aside from going to the bars, the mall, and Giant City. However Giant City requires a bit of a drive so if you don't have a car it's going to be tough to get there.

    There are many opportunities for activities on the campus and in the surrounding area. On campus, students can get involved in clubs, groups, or teams of many different types. Off campus, students can travel to one of the forests to hike the trails or go to one of the many lakes around Carbondale and enjoy swimming or other aquatic activities.
