    there isn't much happening on campus all the time. soccomm events that have people out on the quad aren't very well attended all the time. they will sometimes bloom for a couple hours, but interest is never really held as long as the event is advertised for and quad events don't happen very often. football games and basketball games are fun and you'll usually find a small group of people who are die hard cheering (and often hammered). a lot of clubs have events within themselves. frats throw parties every weekend, but for most of them you have to be on the list. lots of good restaurants in worcester, the art museum is pretty cool, and there's a lot of great architecture. there are a lot of food events on campus which is great. i haven;t visited bankcroft tower yet but i hear it's cool. a lot of people hang out on the stodd quad on the weekend.

    I'm still trying to figure that one out. I guess you could go to Boston, but that can get expensive if you don't have a car. There isn't much to do in Worcester (pronounced Wooster) and is not somewhere you want to be walking around at night. Especially by yourself.

    Join a Fraternity or a Sorority. Play on a sports team or a club unless you enjoy being quirky. This school is about eighty percent: kids who enjoy electronics and in some a cases a quiet night compare to the other twenty percent: kids who went to college for not only an education, but an experience.

    Hanging out with friends, working out in the gym, climbing the bouldering wall, watching movies, attending a social committee event, hiking, participating in a Residential Hall Council event, joining an intramural sport, signing up for a new club... honestly, the possibilities are endless.

    Ice skating, roller skating, trampolines, exercise, hang out with friends, rock climbing, yoga, zumba, dance and eating! Or just join a club on campus!

    There's always something going on, whether it's a football game, Greek Life event, SocComm barbecue or a pick-up game of ultimate frisbee. Sometimes you have to go out of your way to find the fun stuff to do, but it's well worth the effort.

    Join Greek life. They throw plenty of parties around campus. Wooberry has great froyo. There are movies showing every week. Basketball games and other sports are fun to watch with friends. Lots of great delivery options for food.

    There are plenty of clubs to join, places to eat, and buildings to visit. The Art museum and a beautiful park is right next to the campus. There are often events or festivals going on as well.
