Student Life

Where We Play

Breaks from studying are important - very important. So, occasionally our students come out of their residence hall or library nook and HAVE FUN. There’s plenty to enjoy on campus: concerts, comedians, films, lectures, The Korouva Milkbar, innumerable intramural and recreational activities, and 90+ student organizations that do their fair share of socializing!

ON CAMPUS

  • Scare up a game of Ultimate on the Academic Mall
  • Play Madden on the XBOX 360 in The Cove
  • Have a cup of tea at Korouva Milkbar
  • Get your groove on at Friday Night Live
