    There are tons of different things to do. There are club sports, we have concerts, we have an ice skating rink, and we throw some good parties.

    Can definitely be kind of boring, especially on the weekends. If you are big into partying then that will be your Friday and Saturday, maybe Thursday night too. However parties are off campus. If that's not for you the campus hosts events but it can feel weird to go to them. Also it can be hard to make friends or reach out to go with someone. Games are fun. Not even basketball, but soccer games are a blast, and if you know field hockey those are great too. Taking a walk on horsebarn hill or the UConn forest can be nice if you are into being outside.

    Join clubs! There's like two hundred and something official ones, which is really cool. This is the best way to make friends, which is the best way to have fun. Make sure to join at least one or two clubs that take a lot of time and involvement, because those are the ones that lead to lasting, deep friendships. A lot of people find that through Greek organizations, and there are plenty of them here, including typical social Greek life, academic, service, professional, and a few that are a mix of all of the above. A lot of people party, and while most freshman go to a few widely-promoted parties, it's more fun to get a good friend group and go to parties with people you actually know rather than ones you heard about on yik yak or something. There are also plenty of fun school-run things like free movies and free food and free shirts and free entertainment. Lots of free stuff.

    You may have heard that Uconn is located in the middle of nowhere and that there is nothing to do besides watch the cows, but this hasn't been true in my experience. There's a movie theater in the Student Union, which plays new movies every Friday night. Also the Union has Late Night every Friday night, featuring karaoke and great food. There's an ice skating rink right by campus for when it gets colder out. Athletic events happen every single day, throughout the entire year, where you can watch the Huskies dominate their opponent per usual. Sometimes the university has really cheap bus trips to places like Boston or New York, which are a great way to get away with your friends for a day. There are also a bunch of parties Thursday-Saturday, especially when it's warmer out, which are really fun and a great way to meet a bunch of new people. On top of all that, Storrs Center is only a two minute bus ride away, with a bunch of restaurants and stores where you can shop. I rarely find myself bored on campus, and when I do its very easy to gather up some friends and find something to do.

    The University of Connecticut is location in a very rural area, so you have to know how to take advantage of campus life in order to have fun. Downtown Storrs offers shopping centers and cafes and can be a great place to have lunch while trying to pretend you're not on campus, if one can afford it. Having a car on campus can be really beneficial because then you can go off campus for activities. However there are some activities that UConn offers that one can take advantage of. Further, there is a decent party scene and the local bar, Ted's, is a common place for students to go.

    Thought the student recreation center is small, a larger, more high-tech one is in the design process.
