    there are plenty of fun activities on campus, but i definitely recommend heading to the river for some canoeing. it's also nice to swim at barton springs, which stays comfortable year round. and if you're into the party scene, there are hundreds of concerts going on across the city every night, from local, national, and international artists. there are also city-wide music festivals like sxsw. although these have been getting pretty pricey, the rest of the city participates in little ways as well, so you never really miss out.

    There is no shortage of recreation at UT. Gregory Gym includes a track, a rock climbing wall, swimming pools, and standard fitness equipment. The Union Building has an underground bowling alley (which has study rooms in it for some reason). There are also many events that come up on campus periodically. I walked by an outdoor showing of the Avengers a few months ago. Jester has a recreation area in the basement with a ping pong table, pool tables, and televisions. Each residence hall hosts its own events including pizza parties, Super Smash Bros tournaments, and board game nights.

    I am part of the UT Sailing Team and the Design Build Fly team in the Aerospace Department. Clubs are a great way to meet people. This past semester, I went to a haunted house, camping, parties, dinners and more with different club members.

    Again joining a org. Or just going out and experiencing Austin for itself. There are a lot of fun interesting people that live here, and there is always something to do. My favorite is to go to band venues, like Cheer Up Charlies or Scoot Inn.

    Firstly, there's the entirety of Guadalupe, which has a TON of food places. However, that can get tiring after awhile. I suggest joining a bunch of clubs on campus and going to their events. Taking trips to SoCo or just exploring Austin is cool. The city always has some kind of festival or event going on, so just make sure to keep an eye out. Additionally, depending on who you know, there are always parties every weekend as well. And, of the course, the obvious - game days.

    Visit the Drag and downtown Austin. It is amazing how one can be entertained just by walking through Austin. Join some clubs and meet new people. If you crave nature, visit Austin's Green Belt.
