    Sooo much to do!! All the athletic events are a great time- the athletic pass is MORE than worth the price. Tailgating, strolling down Mass. street, etc.

    The amount of things to do is insane. Lawrence is a great town with lots of night life and culture. If the multiple bars and clubs don't appeal to you, there are a number of great restaurants on Mass Street. Lawrence is also just 30 minutes from both Kansas City and Topeka, which are full of entertainment as well.

    For a little fun, go to sporting events! They are the best way to meet people and have a good time when you first arrive at KU. Join clubs and groups. For example, I am a Marching Jayhawk and have met my best friends through the process. It is a ton of fun and you won't regret it!

    While there is a lot to do on campus, going to Massachusetts Street (often just called Mass) is one of my personal favorites. There are a lot of cool stores and some really good restaurants. If you're looking for ice cream, be sure and stop in at Sylas and Maddy's, a personal favorite of many college students on campus.

    Downtown on Massachusetts streets has so many cool stores, restaurants, and places to enjoy good music. What I do for fun is go downtown, walk around and feel the scenery unfold before me. The atmosphere is uplifting and there always something going on, live movie screens, parades, concerts, etc.

    Mass Street has a lot of great businesses, restaurants and plenty of great venues for musicians. There is almost always a good music show, and plenty of bigger names like Haim stop at Lawrence for a show in the middle of a national tour. Plenty of great bars too.

    Go out to the sporting events, you won't be disappointed by the school spirit! Learn the cheers and chants. Get involved in clubs, fraternities or sororities (if that's your thing).

    Mass St is definitely the place to go on Saturday night to eat out or hit up a bar. They have a huge selection of restaurants and coffee shops in a couple block stretch.The Hawk is a good bar to for sports games. Athletics are a huge part of Jayhawk pride so attending any sporting even is usually a good time though the basketball games are difficult to get into.
