  1. Thursday Night Movie Nights! This is where we stay up for countless hours and watch a horror movie to release the tensions of the school week!
  2. Go to Starbucks at the local Hy-Vee
  3. Playing Zombies vs. Humans. Hoards of people dress up as each and play cross campus in a battle of the undead vs. the living!

Truman State is a smaller/medium sized university located in the small town of Kirksville, Missouri. Because of this, having fun can be a bit of a challenge; however, Truman students can get pretty creative if they set their mind to it. For fun, the majority of the students spend a lot of time at Thousand Hills where they can spend their day hiking, biking, swimming, etc. At night they go to the train bridge where they can lay in the grass, look up at the stars and feel a large gush of wind as the trains go by. While on campus, many students participate in a game of campus frisbee. The object of the game is to complete the course in the least amount of throws, but the challenge is keeping your frisbee away from buildings, statues, trees and even people. Finally, for fun, many students participate in a week long game of humans versus zombies where they get to throw socks and shoot Nerf guns at each other.

The student activities board on campus puts on a lot of fun events that allow meeting new people. For example, a couple weeks ago they put on an event in which RJ Mitte came to speak about his life and disease(and breaking bad). Another thing a lot of students do is go to the Thousand Oaks State Park and ride bikes, rent canoes on the lake and picnic with friends.

One of the things that all students are able to participate in is all the amazing activities our school has to offer. Another thing that students can get involved in is Greek Life, which is very beneficial to ones character. Third, one can always see people out on the quad either reading under the shade of a tree, or throwing a frisbee with friends.
