    Sykes after dark has a lot to do. Including movies for $2 straight out of the box office! Organizations plan a million and one fun things, parties and gatherings going on. At the beginning of each semester...that's when the most parties happen. Two weeks before finals, everyone dies down and works hard.

    Besides the activities on campus, the town of West Chester is an amazing little town. Full of restaurants, bars, and places to shop, you will never be bored or looking for soothing to do at WCU.

    What to do for fun on campus includes: - Playing sports/ working out at the Student Recreation Center. - Going to Sykes After Dark (games and movies) on the weekends. - Joining groups. One of the best ways to meet friends, be involved and find people who are interested in the same things as you!

    The great thing about West Chester, and the thing that potential students find most attractive about the campus, is the location. It'Â?s not in the middle of nowhere, but it'Â?s not in the middle of the city. But if you want to get to the middle of nowhere, it'Â?s close by, and if you want to get to the city, it's close by. SEPTA bus services run right through the campus, so if you and your friends want to go into Philly for the day, you catch the SEPTA bus to the train station in Philly, and it'Â?s only an hour ride. Usually my friends and I will take the bus into Philly at least once a semester to go see a concert or walk around the city. You do not have to have a car on campus to be able to get somewhere fun. The borough of West Chester (borough is just a fancy name for town) is right up the street from campus. There are tons of shops and restaurants within a few blocks of each other. When it's nice out, it'Â?s great to just take a walk into town to go to Kiwi, the best frozen yogurt place in the world, or just to go for a walk. Once you're of age, there are a dozen great bars all within walking distance of each other and of campus. On campus, there is always something going on. The university sponsors a Friday night program called Sykes After Dark (which I think they are renaming soon), which the university holds every Friday night to promote students not drinking on or off campus. They have something different every week, including comedians, casino nights, BINGO night, JAVA JAM open mic nights, and karaoke. Additionally, there's always free food and a free midnight movie if you have the Sykes After Dark wristband. Every weekend, Sykes shows a movie at several different times throughout the weekend for $2. This is a movie that just came out of theaters. In addition to all of this, other campus activities are always happening, including concerts, football games, conferences, and other sporting events.

    There is not much to do for fun. There is no local movie theater or bowling alley. The only thing you can do is see a movie in the student union building on the weekend.

    Whether it is extracurriculars through the school, campus groups, or affiliated groups from nearby places, there is always something to do on campus. From different events scheduled yearly, the special themes planned every Friday night on campus, or the small town atmosphere a block from campus, you will have something to do if you want something to do.
