    The loop is really close by and has a lot of great restaurants and shops. The Galleria Mall is great. But my favorite thing to do was go see the free shows at the Muny in forest park or take a taxi to the Fox Theatre. There's always lots of events going on at WashU. If you learn how to use the metro link you can get to lots of cool places downtown as well.

    There's always something going on on campus. Greek life is definitely there but also not overbearing if you aren't interested in it. There are plenty of clubs that span a large variety of interests. Forest Park is a short trip away, there are plenty of good restaurants around, and you can find just about anything else with the free metro pass they provide you with.. Wash U has a pretty relaxed alcohol policy, but I chose to live in substance-free housing and didn't have any problems with noise or anything, so that's definitely an option if partying isn't your thing.

    St. Louis was ranked No.2 on the list of cities to offer the most amount of free stuff to college students, second only to Washington D.C. They have several museums on campus as well as off-campus, and a zoo that is within walking distance of the school. During the winter, the zoo occasionally lets the penguins out to roam the zoo freely! Also within walking distance there are loads of good eats, thrift shops, and theaters. One of the coolest things is the City Museum, essentially a playground for adults equipped with everything from indoor climbing ropes to a massive ferris wheel!

    Upperclassmen generally go to the Loop or apartment parties while the underclassmen stick to the dorms or the frats. Though the academics are tough, I had some friends that went out nightly and others that rarely did. Both extremes were able to do well in the classroom. Students here seem to be great at balancing their time and prioritizing. The school funds lots of different clubs that students are free to take part in. Around campus, there always seems to be an a cappella concert, famous speaker, or philanthropy event.

    There are lot of places to travel in and around St. Louis as well as in nearby Forest Park. There is a free zoo, art museum and history museum. There is also the city museum (a playground for adults made out of recycled materials), many delicious restaurants, and of course the arch! Many students go to a variety of bars on weekends or just hang out with friends on campus. WashU has such an eclectic group of people there is always something to do.

    There are many things that could be listed here: clubs, Greek life, intramural sports, parties. public speakers etc. etc. All of these are great ways to make new friends and have a really good time on campus, and the ones you put time into will be the ones you feel closest too. In all honesty, after schoolwork and midterms and the whole scene just relaxing with friends, whether it's playing some soccer/video games or even just going to dinner is a lot of fun, and it's there that I feel the college experience comes together as a whole. Also, make sure to check out the Loop off campus. It's a great place to start exploration of the city.
