    Football games are the go to for the fall semester. They take place each weekend either home or away. For away games, many dorm common areas have viewing parties. Directly north, and across the street from campus is Midtown, an area that lights up at night and during the weekend. There are many restaurants, bars and clubs here. Entry is at an affordable price of usually around $7-$10. The place is always being patrolled by UFPD, so it is very safe. Downtown lies east of campus and is accessible by RTS. Like midtown, there are clubs, bars and restaurants, and there are also some boutiques. Gainesville has more to offer than most people think. Archer Road, directly south of campus, has many restaurants and is host to places such as the movie theater. A popular weekend getaway usually includes a trip to Lake Wauburg or Ginnie Springs, where students can relax on the shore, take a swim or paddle board. On campus, many students promote Gator Nights, a weekly event held in the Reitz. I have never attended, but I have heard good reviews from students who have.

    Gainesville is relatively small for a college town, but there are plenty of outdoors-type of things to do. The trails and forests are beautiful, and RecSports has many events such as rock climbing and ziplining available.

    For fun on Friday nights, check out Gator Nights. They change the program every week and it is always tons of fun. One week, they had an around the world themed night and it included henna tattoos, didgeridoos, and an African drum circle!

    There are many different activities to do on campus. Since UF is in the center of the state, it is very easy to drive to the many different cities in Florida.

    UF has many student events for entertainment, however people should know that the city of Gainesville itself does not have many activities
