    The University is always planning things to do for fun. They offer many clubs and organizations to join as a way to get involved and connected with people on campus. There are a lot of sports events and there are other things like a movie theater and game room in the Student Union.

    There's clubs and sports, and I know plenty of people get together when it's nice out to play Frisbee and soccer. Depending on where you live, there's different things. Some dorms do game nights, as in full on Super Smash Bros. tournaments. Student Union has a game room and a theater. EJ Thomas has concerts, the art school has exhibitions. Speakers visit. Student Union also hosts clubs, like Anime Club and Nerd Herd, where they have Magic the Gathering tournaments, League runs, etc. Around Halloween, campus has a Zombies vs. Humans campaign. As I said before, keep an eye out. If something you want to happen isn't happening, you can probably make it happen.

    I love to run and work out on my spare time. Being in the military now for two years has really got me into a health kick and running now helps me destress and relax after a rough day at school.

    There are so many events one can do for fun. One can go to the game room to bowl and play pool. One can go to the amazing rec center we here, they can go swimming, rock climbing, play sports there, or just workout. One can join intramural teams for sports. Every week there are movies showing. One can go to any of the home sports games at no additional cost. One can also join organizations in which they find interesting. And finally, every week we have different 9:09 and 7:17 events put on by RHPB and RHC.

    Even if you don't like soccer, the games at Akron are fun in the student section. The football team is horrible so I haven't been to one of their games.

    The University of Akron is definitely a party campus, and boasts numerous fests. If you go to these parties expect to see the police, because they are ever present in the party scene. There are also bars, and frat parties if you are willing to step out and look down the street at them.

    There is a student recreational building that housing a swimming pool, indoor track, basketball courts, as well as all kinds of workout equipment. There is also a bowling alley that houses eight lanes along with a room that has ten pool tables to play on. Outside of the student rec, there is an outdoor track.
