Students at Calvin College enjoy attending or playing in the Calvin sports games, especially basketball and volleyball games vs the rival school, Hope College. Intramural sports are also available for those who have less time to dedicate to the game but still want to join in on the fun! They also enjoy group Bible studies or going to Chapel services to take a break from the quick-moving pace of college life and strengthen their faith. The Bible studies especially are a great way for students to be intentional about both improving themselves and serving others through a community of support. Another fun activity is to hop on the bus to downtown Grand Rapids where there is always plenty to do: unique restaurants, Art Prize, exciting concerts, and even a soon-to-arrive "Cat Café".

Hang out in Johnny's- This involves mostly going to get B-quiv at night with your friends, B-quiv is breakfast equivalency. Play ultimate Frisbee- ultimate is huge at Calvin, and my dorm (SE) plays at least twice a week or more. They even have a facebook page to notify people about it. Blasting music seems to also be quite enjoyable. During exam week we have a ten minute period called ten at ten. During this time from 10:00 to 10:10 all the dorm boom boxes are cranked up to max volume while every jumps around and shouts.

For fun, kids usually walk around downtown, take advantage of the athletic facilities (rock wall and open gym), and attend on-campus concerts that Calvin hosts.

We go to concerts, hang out with our floor mates, and support local artists, both written and drawn.

At Calvin there is a large variety of activities available to us to get involved in and have a ton of fun doing. One of the things we do at Calvin for fun is have a night called "chaos night" where every dorm has a different theme and we all get dressed up in that theme and compete in several different competitions to win points. Another thing Calvin students do for fun is plan trips all over the country for spring break, for example, some students will hike the Appalachian Trail or plan a road trip to the Rocky Mountains. My personal favorite thing we do for fun here at Calvin is called the "sen-pond jump." This is where the staff cuts a hole in our frozen sen pond in the winter and students come, some dressed in costumes, to take the crazy plunge into freezing waters. These examples are not even scratching the surface of all the fun things that Calvin College has to offer.
