For fun at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign students can join one of the biggest Greek communities. There are over 19 sororities and 40 fraternities to become a part of at UIUC. Also, with the wide variety of independent shops and restaurants on and around campus it is easy to get lost in the college feel of things. Lastly, for fun, the campus itself if gorgeous and huge. Just walking around campus discovering all the great architecture of the building, the Morrow plots, the friendly squirrels, and the very diverse population of students that inhabit the campus.

Go to Green Street. This street runs right through the middle of our entire campus, and hosts everything from barber shops and dine-in restaurants to apartments and fast food. This is the place to be.

Party. U of I was listed as the #1 Party school in the nation just last week, and the students here really relish that award. With the largest greek system in the country, it's not hard to see that partying is a natural phenomenon here.

Take the Fat Sandwich Challenge. This sounds fun in the beginning, but about a quarter of the way through a 25,000 calorie sub-sandwich piled high with fries, onion rings, pizza rolls, bacon strips, popcorn chicken, and more, an uneasy feeling in your gut tells you it wasn't worth it.

The Quad is always a great place to relax during the day. Here, I find people studying, playing frisbee, or even walking a tightrope between two trees. If you're in the mood to explore, you can tour Green Street, a street full of ethnic restaurants and nifty shops. Additionally, University of Illinois loves to party, especially before and after an exciting football game.

The students here know how to party! Urbana-Champaign is full of fun things to do, but I would say the top three include eating at any of the unique, one-of-a-kind pubs and restaurants downtown, shopping at all the authentic street style stores in the scenic Champaign, or enjoying one of the many parks and recreation centers the University offers (usually with special perks for its students!).

1) Well, today I was informed that U of I was crowned the top party school in the nation, so if I had to answer truthfully, I'd say partying is pretty high on the list of the average student's extracurricular activities. 2) Eat at all the ethnic restaurants surrounding campus. 3) Frequent the nifty coffee shops and parks in the area.

  1. Fundraising - at UIUC we turn fundraising into fun events that you pay to participate in. These include flag football tournaments, BBQs, and bar crawls. All money is then donated to charities that different organizations across campus support.
  2. Football and Basketball games - tailgating and supporting the basketball team with the Orange Crush spirit squad is huge! Even if our teams aren't very good, we all have a good time supporting them.
  3. RSOs - Registered student organizations are an easy way for people to get involved. From Greek life to bible studies to theater to charity and political beliefs - we have it all! At UIUC I have been able to participate in Pi Beta Phi Sorority, a Greek-affiliated bible study for young women, the Pre-Law Honors Society of which I was president, and was able to found my own RSO "Take a Stand" which spreads awareness of civil rights issues and funds local charities.

In my experience, most students love movie parties! Whether it be at university sponsored showings of movies or just having small parties with friends, students here are cinephiles! We also love bowling and karaoke, and all of these happen at our university's Illini Union building!

The University has a very large bar scene where students are able to go out and socialize any night of the week as long as they are 19 years of age. Our campus has many large quads where students are able to participate in several different activities, such as frisbee, catch, soccer, and more. The University's Greek life provides students with multiple opportunities to get involved in philanthropy events. Students find it extremely entertaining to participate in these events, which can be anything from softball, to dodgeball tournaments, and scavenger hunts.

While attending the University of Illinois I have discovered many fun activities to participate in to make my time there even more enjoyable. One of my favorite things to do is to go swimming and layout at the outdoor pool. During finals week it is the perfect place to take a break from studying and enjoy the nice weather. Also, going out on the main quad is a wonderful place to have some fun. Students are always out there either studying, playing Frisbee, or just have some laughs with friends. Lastly, the night life is another fun part of our campus. At the Canopy Club there are frequent concerts for the students to attend. In addition, there are many bars where students go to during the weekends, including our nationally known bar called Kam's.

The top three things are different for everyone but in my opinion the top three would be going to the bar since there is so many on campus.

I really enjoy being active so I spend a lot of my time doing physical activity. I really enjoy going to the gym and lifting or playing basketball with my friends. In general, I love spending time with my friends, so we try to do fun activities together, weather it's just showing each other new music or going out to get food. Service has been a big part of my life, so I am also part of a service club that volunteers at local animal shelters and and helps out animals in need.

It’s an old theater and close enough to walk to. There’s a nice Arboretum with a Japanese garden next to it for walking and bike riding. And there’s always live music on campus at places like Canopy Club and Foellinger Auditorium.

Hang out on the quad and enjoy various hobbies. There is everything from rope balancing, hooping, futbol, football, studying, music, etc. Especially when it's warm out, the quad is incredibly busy. Students walk around downtown Green Street, which is pretty famous in the area. It's a growing little downtown campus area catered specifically to college students. There are also a bunch of bars, clothing stores and food places on Green. There are also a ton of clubs at the U of I, and there is always something going on with one of them.

They attend shows at the Community Theater whether it be ballet, a concert, or even a play. Attend social gatherings so that students may get to know each other better. They are held more after sporting events and at student housing off-campus. Go to football and basketball games to cheer on the Fighting Illini. We are very passionate about all the sports and the student section is always a sea of orange and white. We even have a section dedicated to the super-fans so that they can go absolutely crazy and represent the school.
