    Every Friday night is a Perkins Live event that offers fun, free things, food, and awesome live entertainment for students in an environment that is safe, warm and alcohol free. Of course there are also tons of clubs, activities and all the other normal college stuff too.

    There's always something to do. Whether it's socializing off campus or on Main Street, or going to Perkins Live. No matter what type of person you are, there is something going on.

    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.

    Go out on the weekends with your friends. Hangout on the green. Go to school sponsored events.

    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.
