    I love going to the gym and playing basketball. There are plenty of games going on and you'll always be able to find some people to build a team and play.

    If you're 21 or older I recommend 6th street. If not there is always some alternative ideas like going to castle hill which is a graffiti park, see the river bats, go paddle boarding, or just walk along the drag and visit the various shops.

    Go to music festivals. Austin is widely considered the live music capital of the world. You'll understand why once you get here. Austin City Limits is hugely popular (some artists I saw last year were Iggy Azalea, Lana Del Rey, and Eminem). Sixth street is of course hugely popular for drinking and parties, as well as the massive Greek life on campus. And there's always events organized by other organizations that are immensely fun to try. Just pick something and tyr it out.

    Outdoors stuff is easy to find, there are a ton of trails for hiking, some ok biking, there's some climbing, you can go swim, dive, skate, wakeboard, you can go shoot, hunt, run, work out, watch movies, do art, there are dozens of groups, clubs, and classes around Austin for pretty much anything. Seriously almost anything.

    Austin is a crazy big, awesome, spirited city! There are an endless amount of things to do for fun. Austin has music festivals regularly, and music plays a major part in the city's image. There are several museums right on UT's campus, so one is never short on the opportunity to be cultured here.

    It's Austin so there's plenty of music scenes, parks, museums, and countless of volunteer opportunities. Take advantage!

    Artistic expression is a central theme in Austin with their various music festivals (ACL, FFFfest, SXSW, etc.). With your UT ID you can take the Austin buses pretty much anywhere so finding a way to Zilker Park, Whole Foods, or Magnolia Cafe shouldn't be a problem. Food truck parks are also a fun thing to experience in Austin, because they supply a plethora of types of treats to try.

    Austin is great. I've been living here for several years so I know what's around town and I feel like a lot of UT students from out of town never really leave campus since everything they need is right there. There's paddle boarding, canoeing, kayaking, and all that on Town Lake. You can go zip-lining and hiking on Mount Bonnell. There's a lot of unique food places you can check out. We have Zilker park, ACL, SXSW, Fun Fun Fun fest, a bridge with bats that come out at night, and 6th street is great for a night out.
