    It's DC there is so much to do. On campus there are frats and sororities and clubs to join and often there are speakers on campus that students are free to go to. The more fun things are off campus like restaurants and bars with good food, clubs to go out, the monuments, and all the museums except for one are free and they are so nice to go to. There are plenty of movie theaters around campus some host cool events like Rocky Horror showings on Halloween, and theres also the Captial One Arena which has concerts, basketball games and hockey games (which are very popular). Theres also club sports teams to join as well as ATV and radio.

    Although American university claims to be in the heart of D.C. it's more like at the very edge of town. You feel like your in the country and now where near a large city. You have to ride a bus or commute to the metro station to get into town.

    You're going to be living in D.C. There is always something going on! Almost all of the museums are free, the zoo is free and they are open every day except for Christmas. There are several restaurants that are close to campus. There is also a myriad of events every day on campus; from plays to dance performances to political demonstrations. There is no excuse for you to be bored at American University.
