    Attend seasonal concerts on campus (ie. Block Party, Spring Splash, Heat Festival). Attend sporting events (we are typically Division I underdogs). Engage in intramural sports. Look into studying abroad.

    we're located right in the middle of la, oc, san diego and palm springs. though there's not too many things to do in riverside itself, there's always places to go, and a variety of places to go too.

    You can join clubs (there's a ton). There are also a lot of events that go on within the dorms throughout the week. There isn't much to do off campus without a car or taking the bus. A lot of people go home on the weekends so it can get pretty boring if you stay which is why it's a good idea to get involved with clubs because most clubs have events over the weekend.

    The University of California Riverside offers many opportunities for students to have fun such as music festivals, shopping from venders that come, and dances. Outside of campus, students have the option to explore Downtown Riverside and go to University Village to grab a bite or go watch a movie. Furthermore, many people enjoy visiting our Botanical Garden or hiking to the C on the top of the mountain.

    If you go to Latitude 55, you can check out Xbox games to play, throw darts, play pool, play foosball, and play some board games. If one goes out to the Bell tower on particular Wednesdays at noon, you might catch a small concert. In the Student Recreation Center, you can climb the rock wall, float on the lazy river, soak in the jacuzzi, exercise, join a dance or yoga class, play badminton, play basketball, play racquetball, play tennis, or ping pong. You literally will need more time to fully take advantage of all the great things happening here.

    You can do plenty of stuff inside of your hall (if you live on campus) plus there are always plenty of events going on that you can check out and clubs to join. Try visiting the Botanic Gardens.

    There are so many events the associated student body hosts, and many events that just happen around campus. Keep in touch with what's going on by checking your school email, the student newspaper, or stop by the Student Life office to see what's going on around campus.

    Hiking up the C is a great way to see the view of the campus and all around the county especially at night. There is a brand new gym that just opened and its amazing. It has new workout equipment a pool where everyone at the campus goes to, to hang out and tan , and a rock climbing wall. Around campus theres a lot of shade a great place to relax and distress especially with the scenery of the campus.

    There are three major events on campus; Block party, Heat, and Spring Splash. These events occur once every quarter and have fun activities, food and the live entertainment is pretty great. I recommend joining a club on campus. You can go to the meetings, make friends there and hang out, and when they hold events, you can help out. For example, I was a member of Active Minds and once a quarter, we would have therapy fluffies. Students can come to our little area and pet dogs (there is research on therapy dogs reducing stress). It is great opportunity to give back to the UCR community and have fun with some cute dogs!
