    There are so many clubs, organizations, and sporting events to take part in on this campus. Of course, we are notorious for the party scene too, but there are plenty of other options on campus too. It's definitely never boring.

    There is always something going on in the Mountainlair and around campus. If you are more into the night life, highstreet is what you would like the best. There are many dancing clubs and bars on highstreet. There is also Cooper's Rock for people who like to hike and are adventurous. Morgantown also has many restaurants that are close to campus.

    In addition to the popular sports games to attend such as football and basketball, there are also places to see movies, bowl, shop, go out to eat, and also several places for night life. WVU also holds something called Up All Night every weekend where they play free movies in our movie theater, provide free food, and $1 bowling.

    Outdoors and indoors, the Monongalia County region has much to do. Coopers Rock State Park is just a few miles east of town, providing hiking, climbing, ziplining, and outdoor exploration to anybody looking to escape the hustle of the city and relax. Night life in the city is similar to what you would find in any major city. Clubs line up downtown, and music venues dot the city, giving way for fans of rock, country, hiphop, and everything in the middle to experience their favorite artists live. Pittsburgh is only a 90 minute drive north, as well.

    There's a lot to do for fun if you're into partying, but not much to do if you're not. There's a mall and such, of course, but if you can't drive you might feel away from any non-alcohol related fun things.

    Sports are a mainstay, so you can always count on some sort of athletic event. The Mountainlair and areas around Woodburn Hall are often abuzz with activity. There are sparse shopping solutions, like the mall and shops downtown, and the Creative Arts Center has great shows for little/no cost. However, the city is party-centered, so around the bars and pubs downtown is where you'll tend to find the most activity.

    With 300+ student organizations and 30,000 students to meet their is a lot to do depending on how willing you are to participate. Fallfest is a big event at every year and the football and basketball games are always exciting. The Mountainlair brings many students into a welcoming environment full of fun and possibilities.

    There's more things to do in Morgantown than most people know what to do with. I personally know of four different clubs, numerous bars and restaurants, and a hookah bar. There's also a few movie theaters and a mall. There's a rec center right on campus that offers a number of different activities. And if all that isn't exciting enough for you, there's at least one party going on every night of the week, especially on the weekends.
