    Most people hang out on the quad, walk around campus, or get frozen yogurt. There is an ice skating rink by the Armory and bowling is located in the basement of the Union building.

    It is always great to go down to the main quad where there is always something going on. You can always see people handing out flyers or starting chants so it's pretty fun to join in. Football games are also big so if you happen to come upon some tickets definitely go.

    Be social and connect with people allowing more opportunities to have fun and be in the "know" about events. You don't just have to interact with people you could attend/participate in the events around campus.

    there are many student organizations and events available to students. its just being willing to come to the events, often at first not knowing many people. however the experience with other students on campus is truly like no other

    have you ever heard of green street? if you have not, then you are missing out! green street is one of the most popular streets on campus. located just a five-minute walk from the quad, it is the ideal place to go between classes. filled with unique restaurants, boutiques, and bars, there is plenty to do at any hour of the day. some campus town staple restaurants on green street are mia za's (pizza and pasta), sakanaya (sushi), which wich? (sandwich shop). for shopping, green street has everything from urban outfitters to ragstock, you cannnot go wrong. in case you were not aware, a fun fact is that the legal age to enter bars in urbana-champaign is 19. however, the legal drinking age is still 21, so be responsible and make smart decisions. there are various types of bars on campus that many students explore. however, if the bar scene is not really your cup of tea, you can watch a movie on the quad, catch a performance at the krannert art center, watch a sporting event, attend a concert at the canopy club, or go ice-skating, the opportunities are endless! during the warmer months, the university screens free movies on the quad and students will gather to watch together under the stars. you can find everything from ted talks, to musicals, and ballet being performed at the krannert art center. while tickets are not free to students, the shows are definitely high quality and worth the money. students rave about the fun that they have at the football, basketball, and hockey games on campus. even though we are not always the team to beat, being around your peers makes it all worth it. from excision, to b.o.b., and the chainsmokers, the canopy club invites popular artists from all genres to entertain students. although these tickets are not free to students, it is always a fun night to be had regardless. there is also a decent size mall that can be reached by bus, along with various restaurants in the downtown champaign and urbana areas.

    Go to athletic events- even the less popular ones like softball/baseball, wheelchair basketball, and hockey. Check out events around campus- a capella concerts, comedy shows at the union, Illinites every month. & when you turn 21 you'll have plenty of fun places to celebrate :)
