    everything. there's multiple lakes and rivers nearby. houseboat parties. sacramento is about 15-20 minutes away and is super fun. you just need to go around and see what jives - but it offers all the same fun that sf does. amtrack goes to the heart of sac and it's about $20 roundtrip without your student discount. downtown davis doesn't offer a lot in the way of "fun" things except when the city puts on an event (which is about once a month). there's a ton of bars though, all within walking distance of each other throughout the square blocks of dt. the campus itself is massive. always something going on - just hang out in the quad for an afternoon and you'll see some performance arts, some plays. the arboretum wraps around the whole thing and will take you to some hidden parks behind a section of the equestrian area.

    Sacramento is a few minutes away and offers an array of activities ranging from shopping to waterparks, mini golf to a trip to the movies.

    Go for a bike ride around campus, explore the arboretum, hang out in Downtown Davis, get involved in clubs, and get lost in the Shields Library.

    Movie nights! That is what me and my friends do. We also play card games and board games. Sometimes we just go for a walk to the Arboretum - which is a beautiful lake/garden kind of place. Basically, you have the entire campus. You can do whatever you want to - bike rides, walks, movie nights, shopping, lunch, dance, sleep on grass.

    Go to sports events. You get free stuff there, and it's actually pretty fun to show your school pride. The dance and theatre department constantly puts on shows. And stop by the KDVS station. The guys there are really friendly, and are just down to chill. To keep track of other school events, check the school events calendar online and read your school emails. Pro tip: we the Student Health Center sometimes brings out therapy dogs to help you destress during finals week. Working out at the ARC is also pretty fun. Look out for the classes there, or grab a workout buddy. There's also a bowling alley on campus!

    Going to sporting events such as football games and basketball games is extremely fun. Win or lose, Aggies try their hardest and have fun while doing it. Going to the Activities & Recreation Center, or ARC, to work out at the gym is a great way to stay healthy and relieve stress.

    There are many clubs to join on campus.Whatever your preferences are, be it major, ethnic, or religiously oriented, community service, or recreational (I hear there's as anime club). I am currently in Davis Lions Club, the SCTA (if you're interested in teaching), and Taekwondo Club. There's also sports, you can work out at the ARC, and P.E. classes are fun and stress relieving. If those don't catch your interest then you can explore Downtown Davis and get a bite to eat with some friends.

    If you're looking for a party, better get involved with Greek life. There are parties frequently. Beyond that, the Arboretum is a great place for exercise or a pleasant stroll. Downtown is a great place to go for a movie or a nice meal. Sacramento is only a bus ride away.

    Farmers market, join clubs, join a sorority or a fraternity and all sporting events are super fun especially if you're apart of the aggie pack!

    Join clubs! Take part in intramural sports! Explore downtown! There are so many options and opportunities to put yourself out there and have fun. Or bike over to the arboretum with a book and enjoy the sun in the park.
