    since western illinois is in a small town, macomb doesn't have much to do. the mall is practically walmart, and the best restaurant is buffalo wild wings. theres the square where it has a couple of stores and has a pet store with the cutest animals. the school sometimes creates events for theirs students such as movie nights, mud volleyball, powderpuff, big pink volleyball, events at the multicultural center and more.

    Yes again this is a small town, but it is also a college town. There is always something to do, but you also have to create the initiative to find something. The more people you talk to (which you should, networking is key) the more things you'll have to do. We also have a bowling alley, a few bars that are actually really fun, and of course a movie theater.

    Mud volleyball, joining clubs and activities like IHC or Rugby, there's a hot air balloon rally. There's so much to do, you'll never be bored.

    There is a bowling alley right down the street along with a putt putt course and a movie theater. There is also always something to do on campus like glow parties and movie showings through Inter-Hall Council or University Union Board among other student organizations.

    There are many great things at to do at Western. When I have free time, I go to the gym and workout and also take a visit in the aquatic center. Also, when the year begins with a kick off, I attended many different events including scuba diving, kickball, movie nights, basketball and volleyball games, and also getting to know your floor.

    I am involved with the cheer team. That takes a lot of my time up and it is very fun! I can not wait to get involved with more academic and social practices.

    There is ALWAYS something to do on campus whether it's to participate in Big Pink volleyball, Mud Volleyball, sporting events, painting the Rocky statue, or just hanging out with friends. There is never a moment where I'm bored here.

    I am involved in several organizations: ROTC, Sigma Pi, Honors College, and the Vets Club. If I'm not doing something with them, you'll catch me at the bowling alley or the movie theater.
