    There are countless of activities, clubs, and organizations. However, my favorite part was the recreational area! Man, you will fall in love. They offer everything! I'm not really big on working out, but when I saw it, I wanted to try out everything! They have a sauna, a huge swimming pools, classes offered to students, indoor tennis, and so much more. But that isn't the best part, the movie theater in Macomb has ridiculously cheap tickets for the most popular movies showing at the time! Like, I'm talking $5.00 cheap! Crazy!

    they have a massive rec center where people can work out and be healthy. big pink volleyball is a very common thing to do. people are very friendly though and there are always events and clubs going on.

    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.
