    you never get bored here. attend the talk by the u.s. senator here. go to that music performance (or eight) the next night. grab a meal with a professor. go to the surrounding areas for volunteering opportunities or explore. join one of the over 200 clubs. hit the hiking trails in the berkshires with your friends - try snowshoeing or mountain climbing. cheer on your friends at their sporting events (athletics are quite solid here). go to formals hosted by the clark, or parties in the weekends. read full review
