    Always plenty of parties to go to. You can go to Gator Nights, where they show various movies, or if you have a HDMI cable, you can hook your laptop up to the dorm TVs and have a movie night with your friends. Lots of places to eat in midtown. Spend the night cramming at the library Club West.

    The student recreation centers are always great. Plus, Oaks mall isn't too far away. Just hop on Bus 20.

    Most Saturdays during football season, there are games, of course! you cannot be a true gator and not attend football games! Every Friday noght there are activities put on by the school, and on other nights occasionally. There are many clubs, either to do with your major, something just for fun, or sports clubs. And, if you think that stuff just isn't for you, you can gather up your friends and go to Midtown on any given night, for a thriving club scene. There's always soething to do on campus, you just have to figure out what it is!

    Honestly, there isn't too much to do on campus. There are parties every weekend as long as you know someone at a frat, but they're also easy to avoid if that's not your scene. Gator Nights at the student union every Friday are nice; they give out free food and show a movie that's not on DVD yet and have some other miscellaneous events. There are plenty of fields for sports if you want to play football or ultimate frisbee, and when it's hot there are some pools. There are some nice nature areas if you like that sort of thing, but there isn't a whole lot else unless you either have a car, or want to spend your nights clubbing downtown or midtown.

    There a lot thing to do in Gainesville and the best part is that you do not need a car to enjoy the town because the bus system can take wherever you want.

    If you grew up in a small town, like me, you're in for a treat. If you didn't, then you'll feel right at home. Mid-town is the perfect place to be any day of the week. You'll find your bars and your nice restaurants and even some dance clubs to pick and choose from. Oh! and don't forget about Archer avenue! Anti-social? Well you'll find some cool music shops, laid back specialty places, and incredible hole-in-the-wall dining. Plus there's an amphitheater in the park with live free music just about every night of the week there in Downtown. Not to mention the handful of natural springs that are only a short drive away and a flurry of extra-curricular activities to take part in. I mean, after all, it is a college town.

    There are so many things here. The amount of activities here are endless. Each residence hall may have separate activities. Because we are a sports school, there are different sport games throughout the week, and they are all free (except football). Gator nights is every Friday in the reitz Union. There are so many clubs to join. You will never have nothing to do!

    North Central Florida is known for its vast amounts of land, making it a great place to spend quality time outdoors. There are tons of various activities students can partake in when they are not studying, such as camping in Paynes Prairie, biking along Hawthorne trail or tubing down the various rivers and springs, located in High Springs, 20 minutes North of Gainesville. For those who are not so inclined to spend their time outdoors, the various local restaurants and bars do not disappoint!
