    There is always something going on. The SUB (Student Union Board) hosts 3 free events during each semester where there is food, crafts, entertainment, shows, and various activities. The school also has a cinema Thursday-Sunday in the math building. Its free to attend and snacks are available for purchase. The movies shown are usually movies that have been in theatres sometime in the past year. Resident Halls and Houses are also always hosting events. There is constantly free food, music, activities, etc all around campus. Football and Men's Basketball games also get really intense and it should be on your bucket list as a student to attend a game or two. The gym also has free group fitness classes that are super fun to take with your friends. You have fun, pick up a few new skills, and stay in shape at the same time.

    Join clubs! I was a part of the Game Renegades and the Chess Club. Both were fun to attend and the people who run the clubs are amazing.

    At Iowa State, there are many things you can do for fun; this campus has two recreation centers on both sides of campus. There are always events, lectures, and shows going on around the campus. When someone has downtime, a fun thing to do is exploring the campus and meeting new friends.
