    Lubbock is full of fun things to do, especially for students coming from small towns with limited opportunities. There is a mall close to campus and several movie theaters in town. There is no shortage of great restaurants and coffee, smoothie, and frozen yogurt shops. Lubbock also has quite a few parks, churches, and bars within walking distance of campus. The campus has plenty to do for fun also. There are acting troops, a myriad of campus organizations, and student ministry groups that meet regularly. Scheduled events such as "Night at the SUB" keep students busy as well. Sometimes special speakers, singers, or comedians come to campus. This is not to mention all the sporting events on campus. Football games are a highlight of the fall semester. Most of the events held at Texas Tech are free to students, which makes them even more fun. Texas Tech has great facilities for students. The recreational center has an Olympic-sized pool and an outdoor "lazy river". There are multiple tennis courts, basketball courts, racquetball courts, and workout rooms. The rec center also has a climbing wall and an indoor running track. Outside there are volleyball courts and a beautiful walking path around a huge green field. On one corner of the campus lie the Ranching Heritage Center and the Texas Tech Museum. The museum has a planetarium. With these and more, it is easy to stay entertained on or off campus at Texas Tech.

    I tend to study and workout for fun, however the rec is always crowded and the equipment is often neglected. When you tour the campus rec they only show you the lazy river because its their main attraction but ask around and youâ??ll get a better idea. I am an engineering major after all. Spare time is not a luxury I have.

    There's a lot of on campus activities offered by the TAB and other university clubs. For people of age there's a good sized bar scene, but there's bars all over town not just on the college side of town.

    My friends and I like to go to sporting events on campus and clubs off-campus. We also get together and have movie night over each other's dorm rooms.

    The only thing you can do for fun is to with your friends. No great places or things that can excite you but only people can.

    The city is active 24/7, not to mention you live on a college campus, where you can always find events to go to. There are clubs, plenty of restaurants, and a Main Event kind of nearby. The Rec Center on campus is huge and has classes you can take as well as gyms, or you can just do whatever.
