    There's never a dull weekend in Delaware, unless of course you want it to be. You can stay in and watch Netflix all weekend, or you can go out to a party, eat dinner on Main Street, go to a football game, or check out the other dozens of student-run events held on campus. Different dorm buildings frequently hold movie nights in their lounges. There have been video game tournaments on multiple occasions. You can also hold your own event. UD has a program called You + 2. Essentially, you and two or more of your friends from your floor get together, hold an event that promotes community (a study group with snacks, a craft, dinner & a movie night, etc), fill out a form about it, attach receipts for whatever supplies was bought, and the university refunds you for up to $40. Essentially, the school pays you to eat Chipotle or Insomnia cookies with your friends on your floor, because it builds a sense of community and friendship, improving social life here at UD. There are plenty of fun (and free) things to do on campus.

    The football games at the University of Delaware are always fun along with the events that are held every year, especially during Homecoming week.

    Greek life at UD is popular but unlike some other schools, it doesn't feel like a necessity. You can have fun either way and it comes down to your own personal preference. For the under 21 crowd, there are tons of frat parties, sports-teams house parties, and even dorm parties can be the main attractions. Once you turn 21, you have several bars up and down Main Street that lines the University campus. Aside from partying, the university has movie screenings every weekend for under $5 and you can shop up and down Main Street.

    Many students hang out in the grassy areas of campus (there are many). Playing Frisbee, soccer, hula hooping, tightroping, and many other sports are extremely common. There are also a lot of artists and musicians on campus who sing publicly, bands who play, and students who paint out in the open. In addition, there is a party scene at night or bars nearby for upperclassmen. For younger students, Main Street is right in the middle of campus and there are restaurants and shopping areas here to kill time in.

    Main St. is mainly restaurants, so you can eat your heart out. The mall is 15 minutes away, but 45 if you take the bus. There is a bowling alley on Main St., but for the most part you and your friends have to entertain yourselves.

    There is so many things to do for fun. There are many club that you can sign up and they hold events. Then you can attend the sports games with many people. There is a theater here where you pay 3 dollars to see the latest movies. Then there is Main Street, many places to eat and shop and there is a mall about 20 minutes away that people seem to love. There are gyms on campus where people can work out and one has rock climbing and there is an ice rink where you can go ice staking on Saturdays. The university of Delaware had many activates through out the semesters have are fun to do and anyone is able to go.
