One thing we do for fun at Ohio University would be go to Court Street for great food and to just see Athens unique culture. Another thing we do on the weekends would be just walk around on Mill Street thats where most of the parties are and where the off campus houses are. Lastly we hangout on our green and just people watch while soaking up some vitamin D.

There are so many fun things for students to do at Ohio University. One thing I always enjoy doing is going to the improv comedy show that students put on every Thursday night. Another fun thing that lots of students enjoy doing is going on the hiking paths around the town of Athens. It is such a beautiful place to hike and the views from the top of the hills are breathtaking. Most students also enjoy going to sporting events and supporting our teams. In the fall football games are very popular to go to on the weekends.

At Ohio University, many students take pride in their personal health and are often seen running along the riverside trails or hiking to the top of the hill in order to maintain physical strength. Students also support the athletic teams on campus; whether varsity, club, or intramural, the stands are always filled. Lastly, students have a lot of fun just sitting in their residence hall community room and eating Domino's pizza and Insomnia Cookies. There's so much to learn about and sitting around on the couches talking to one another is one of the best ways to expand knowledge at Ohio University.

I am enrolling for my first semester at Ohio University, so I'm not sure what the top 3 things are yet! I will be playing baseball, so I do hope that baseball will be among the top 3 things if not the first! I believe anything that involves student participation would rank near the top whether it's sports related or not.

  • Ohio University sits in the middle of some of the most incredibly beautiful terrain in all of Ohio. Many students, including myself, love spending time in the nature that surrounds campus. Strouds Run State Park has hiking trails and an a beautiful lake where one can swim, canoe, kayak, and fish; the hike up to Radar Hill is stunning, especially at night when the star are out; and the trails around the Kennedy Art Museum are filled with history and gorgeous scenery.
  • Speaking of the Kennedy Art Museum, many students enjoy perusing the art on display from local artists. Additionally, because the building has been around for 147 years and was originally the Athens Lunatic Asylum, many students enjoy coming to the building to be surrounded by history and learn about the unique heritage of Athens.
  • Lastly, because Athens is a rather isolated city, the bulk of student entertainment comes from Court Street. It is the center of life on campus, housing unique boutiques, restaurants, and bars that focus on creating quality products, often with made with Ohio-centric ingredients.

The number one thing that students do for fun at Ohio University is attending university sponsored events. Whether it be a "throwback Thursday" concert on South Beach or playing with puppies brought in to decrease stress during finals week, Ohio University students are always exciting to get in on the fun brought to our beautiful campus. The next best way for Ohio University students to have fun is to attend our fellow students' sporting events. On any given week, you can find students packed into the stadium for a football game, or lining up outside the convocation center getting ready to cheer on their basketball team. While our sports teams are not as big as other universities, Ohio University students still have immense amounts of pride and school spirit. Thirdly, Ohio University students have fun by helping out their fellow bobcats and the surrounding Athens community. On a daily basis, a student can walk through Baker University Center and find ample opportunities to volunteer their time and efforts to help out someone in need, while still having a fun time doing it.

Athens county is surrounded by the hocking hills and famous hiking trails such as Old Man's Cave. It is on everyone's bucket list who attends OU to hike the famous hills. Getting a group of friends and climbing the mountains and observing the views is one of the most freeing feelings and one of the most enjoyable activities. Another way to free the mind and let go of the stress of classes is to walk, run, bike, etc., the Bike Path. This is a trail that runs along the Ohio River for many miles and is filled with scenic views. The third of many more activities to do at OU is to support our sports teams. While we are not as well known for being high in rankings as the schools around us, school spirit is what Ohio University students pride themselves on. Supporting one another in all that we do is a major part of life on campus and that starts with supporting our sports teams.
