Student, Illinois State University, Class of 2019,
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.
