    A lot of people end up partying on the weekends but I, personally, have never felt pressured to drink or do any of the like at these, let's say, social events. There is plenty of nightlife in the downtown and surrounding area. There are also a lot of ways to have fun without substances between the mall complete with ice rink and movie theater, the many cultural events around campus, the live music around Iowa City, and much more.

    It's hard to be bored in Iowa City. The rec has fun workout classes posted on their website every day, a swimming pool, workout equipment, a climbing wall, and other options if that's your thing. You can easily catch a bus, drive, or bum a ride to Coalville mall and ice skating rink. The campus and surrounding area is great for a walk, run, bike ride, roller blade, or whatever you like to do. It's easy to find a club or organization of people who like to do the same things you do, like play or sing music, talk about and practice photography, play intramural and club sports, and more. Joining a Greek organization gives you tons of opportunities to volunteer and go out, but also helps you make so many friends that there's always a brother or sister to hang out with. Downtown Iowa City has so many options, too. You can go to one of the museums on campus, shop, go to the bars and dance, go out to eat, and more. I've never had a dull moment at the University of Iowa.

    The university always has events and activities going on. The gym is always a good place to go if you are bored or need something to do. Even go to the pool at the gym, the lazy river is the best! The IMU always has movies playing and they aren't old movies either.

    The University of Iowa is located in Iowa City, one of the best college towns. The city is full of something for everyone, and is incredibly easy to navigate. The nearby Coralville has a mall and more food options. And when I say near, I mean it's hard to find out where Iowa City ends and Coralville begins.

    The University of Iowa is set in downtown Iowa City. There is a ton to do, from clubs to Habitat for Humanity to movies at the IMU. It is not hard to find something to do for fun.

    Many parties throughout. Bars are under 21 until 10pm. However, if not into that scene, plenty of other options (both on and off campus) open as well.
