    For me, not much. I don't go to parties and while one of my friends has a car, we don't go out too often. There are events going on around campus, but I would assume that bigger colleges have more events and a wider variety of them. There are some things to do downtown, I'm sure. I just haven't ever gone there. The mall nearby is pretty small and a lot of stores there will close after a little while. About half an hour away from campus there is a pretty nice mall, but you can't get there by taking any of the U of R buses.

    I like to hang out with my friends at the end of the week. I am not one for all the fraternity and sorority parties that happen on-campus, but many are. After the first couple weeks, the parties die down and late-shining freshmen begin to realize that they need to study (do not be one of those, please! It will only make your GPA be a bit more disappointing at the end.).

    Anything and everything you can think of! With over 200 student organizations, there is no doubt that you can find something you're interested in. There are also parties on the weekend for those who like to let loose, both on campus and off campus. The clubs and students groups also host plenty of events/fun fundraisers that are open to all students.

    there are constantly events throughout the weekend that offer things to do. you can take the bus down to the plaza and still go shopping. i'm from nyc so rochester is a little dead but there it is still nice and quiet when you just need that alone time as well as some fun events when you want to socialize with friends.

    Well, there's always the Frat quad, but the Frat Quad is not very welcoming to people of color. But usually when I was an undergrad, there was always a get-together in Southside or off campus. But I hear Boulder's cafe is the new stop to go to, which is right across the bridge.

    There is a movie on campus every weekend and other activities, but students seem to be happiest drunk at parties. I've also heard of a lot of rape charges here on campus. I don't know if that's normal, but it certainly wasn't the case at my first college.

    There's always something going on. A Capella is a huge deal here and the concerts are great. A lot of bands play in/near Rochester.
