Student Responses to Review Topic: What To Do For Fun

    Excluding the fact that San Francisco is easily accessable via BART, Berkeley has its own list of activities for the bored student. Recreational sports, clubs, student unions, and Fraternities and Sororities, occupy the campus, giving each student, no shortage of activities to do. Freshmen are given free passes to all of the football games, something that most upperclassmen are extremely jealous of, for Cal's sports venues are some of the most sought after in the state. If any of this fails, talking refuge on Netflix or League of Legends in your dorm isn't a farfetched desicion, for as long as you have an ethernet cable, as mentioned earlier.

    Berkeley boasts a wealth of student clubs and organizations, several movie theaters in the downtown area, easy access to several shopping districts, a staggering number of just-for-fun classes (often run by students!), a robust music program, and loads of interesting meeting places. If you're bored in Berkeley, it's probably because you haven't explored enough.

    The amount of things to do for fun are truly endless. From laying on the glade, to traveling to San Francisco and Oakland, to many hiking and biking trails, Berkeley has it all. The off-campus food life is also great!

    You can take the bus to go to San Francisco, or explore the surrounding shops in the city. There is an endless amount of things you can do! On weekends and sometimes on weekdays vendors set up shop on the sidewalks around campus and sell many unique handmade items. There is an endless amount of things to do at Berkeley.

    What isn't there to do for fun; there are many clubs to join, San Francisco is just a bus ride away and there are many outlets in the nearby cities.

    In the beginning of the year, people usually go to the frat parties, but they soon get old. Try going to San Francisco. Also, Berkeley has a lot of artists around and museums you can visit. There is always something going on around the city.

    UC Berkeley offers many events that may offer free food, movie screenings, and other theatric displays. In the city, students could hang out at well-known restaurants and stores. Students could also go on a 45 minute bus drive to San Francisco for free with their bus pass.

    Go on top of the Campanile to see the view! The Big C Hike, also a great view. Ride a bike to the Berkeley Marina. Take the Bart into SF and explore!
