Many of the students that attend ISU have fun everywhere on campus since the institution makes sure we have tons of experiences. I would say though the top three things for starters would be the quad. The quad is the heart of where most of the activities take place as well as where most classes are held. It is an open area full of trees and and landscape where the students like to hang out. Students gather their friends to play ultimate frisbee, reenactments, or just to lay in the sun to talk. The next thing would be going to uptown normal. Uptown normal is just a miniature downtown area where the students go to chill, shop, and eat at local restaurants. At night it is great to just take strolls and goof around with friends especially during the holidays when the put the lights up. Lastly a lot of the students like to go to the student recreational center. The center is pretty large with a lot of different equipment for workouts. They also have classes you can go to like hip hop and zumba as well as a rock climbing wall. Many of the students at the school also go to the center for a few games of basketball and soccer on the courts they provide.

For fun, many students will go to the movie theater in the uptown area attached to campus. They play old movies and usually only charge a few dollars for admission so it is cheap and fun. Another thing a lot of us do is go to the quad when the weather is nice to play Frisbee. The third thing we do is walk uptown to some of the coffee shops.

Going to rec center is a big thing at my school. It is packed almost everyday full of old high school athletes and weight lifters. We also like to do club activities such as sports clubs and things like that. Aloso we like to attend school planned parties.

I think that we all join clubs, socialize, and get a good education. I also believe that most importantly what the individual student does themselves to make sure they enjoy their years at college. Doing what everyone else does, does not always make a person happy.

Students go for bike rides or runs on constitution trail. They head down to uptown Normal for the food, Insomnia Cookies, DP Dough, Emack and Bolios, yum! And on nice days, they head out to the quad with a good book or a frisbee and a few friends.

At Illinois University, the students are very diverse. However, we all like to have fun. 1. Music is an important part of any person's life. If there are any music events going on nearby, you can be assured that ISU students will attend. College students are constantly in motion, trying to find our rhythm in life. Music helps with finding our beat. Live music during promotional festivals or simply a brief concert from the music majors always lifts our spirits. 2. You'd think that one of the essentials for living wouldn't be very interesting, but eating is an important part of the student life. Frankly, most of the time students are broke. When we do have a chance to divulge on a good meal, it's like heaven on earth. It's fun to share a meal with friends or even a simple snack. The Crepe Geeks is always a good stop. Delicious crepes sweeten up anyone's day. 3. Hanging out in the quad with our friends is enough to keep us happy. The quad is a small park in the middle of the university. No money is spent, but we enjoy our time together. A break from studying and enjoying good company is plenty fun.

There is never a dull moment while attending Illinois State University. The number one thing students do here at ISU is exercise. There are abundant bike trails around campus, along with free gym membership, and pool access to students. Another popular activity for ISU redbirds is tailgating. Everyone who attends school here is proud of who they are, and are very supportive of their fellow redbirds. Tailgating before football games, and rooting for another redbird victory is one thing we pride ourselves in. One more popular activity at ISU is socializing. ISU offers multiple events to get to know other students, and to familiarize yourself with the school. They offer clubs, sports, national honor societies, sororities, movie nights, bowling ally, and a billiards room just to name a few. Everywhere you turn, you have the opportunity to meet someone new or try something different.

The top 3 things that students do for fun at Illinois State University are workout at the campus recreation center, party on weekends (consists on dancing and singing to the top of our lungs), and eating pizza whenever! Because why not!?

When coming into college every weekend there were kids trying to go out to parties. It seemed like that was the only thing to do aside from the regular school events. I ended up joining a fraternity where I am now able to participate in philanthropy and hangout with my friends but I wont pretend the best part is not partying. The last big thing that people like to do is go to sporting events or join different club teams.

ISU students enjoy hanging out at the Bowling and Billiards center, the bars on uptown Normal and rooting on the Redbirds at sporting events.

Many students flock to the quad when the weather is warm. This fall, I saw many people playing with frisbees, laying in hammocks, and walking dogs on the quad. Another thing that students do for fun here at ISU is attend the many events provided by the University Program Board. These include screenings of Bulls games, Double Feature Fridays which are nights where you pay $1 to watch two movies provided with snacks and drinks, as well as carnivals during certain weeks of the year. One last thing that students do for fun at Illinois State is walk to the rec or play basketball outside of the dorms. When we get nice weather, EVERYONE is outside running, exercising, or playing sports.

Well for me, the top thing I love to do for fun that is go to any UPB (University Program Board), this is an organization that throws tons of fun things around campus including things such as UpLate@State, Movies on the Quad, Festival ISU, and many others. These are great ways for people to meet others and just have fun. Plus there's always free stuff. Next, I would have to say attending any sport events can never be a bad time, especially if you sit in the fan section. Being around all of our peers with all the hype and excitement of supporting our teams, is just a great environment in general. My first sporting event as a freshman was a home football game. I was so shocked at first to see how many people were there and tended to shy away at first. At the end of the 3rd quarter, however, I was screaming along with the rest of the fans. Seeing Reggie Redbird and everyone dressed in red makes it spectacular. Now on the rare occasion where there isn't any school events going on, just spending time in uptown Normal is always fun. There are assortments of shops, places to eat, and even a move theater. One can almost get lost in time with all the stuff to do at ISU.
