    As far as on campus activities, there is always something going on. In the Student Union found on campus, there is a game room to entertain you and your friends or you could go upstairs and catch a new movie playing every week. Greek Life puts on many different performances and fundraisers that any is welcome to and they are always a hit. Off campus, there are many local things to do around Murfreesboro such as eating at fun restaurants on the square or catching local music at different venues. If none of this catches your eye, it is only a 40-minute drive to Nashville where there are plenty of activities to enjoy!

    As you get an excellent education, you can still have a little fun. At the beginning of freshman year, you are required to participate in different activities. MTSU highly encourages first-year students to get involved in activities. Doing your orientation, you get a list of events that you're supposed to complete within your first month. While at first, I thought they were going to be boring activities, as I went to some, they were actually fun. Even if you don't attend, there are other events held locally in Murfreesboro and Nashville. You can go from studying to dancing in a matter of hours.

    Because MTSU is located within a relatively normal town such as Murfreesboro, it can seem difficult to find what might be considered entertaining. However, given the fact that it is beginning to become one of the most quickly developing areas in the country, the idea of finding more and more new places and attractions is not a very far of concept. None of this takes into account what MTSU itself offers, as well. We hold just as many sports and outdoor activities as any other university, and the number of clubs is staggering, from book and computer groups to fraternities and sororities. There is always something for everyone at MTSU, and it only adds to the campuses charm.

    Congratulations, you have made it to college but how will you be spending your time there? It is safe to say that MTSU went above and beyond when pondering this question. One of the things this college is great at is having numerous things available to keep one busy. There are quite a few MTSU concerts going around on campus every week, a wide variety of clubs you can join based on your interests, and recreational activities such as playing basketball or having a good workout at the gym. MTSU really has a club for everyone and they always have activities going on. There are also other activities you can get into such as movie nights, talent shows and guest speakers for you to enjoy yourself and have a good time overall.

    Although I may not live on campus, I still know about the various activities available to students. Whether it's off campus activities such as taking a drive to downtown Nashville, heading to the park after classes, or hanging out at Stone River Mall with a group of friends there's always something to do. Not to mention the on campus activities like working out at the Rec Center. You could spend a whole day at the Rec Center and not get to everything they have to offer. There's also the option to enjoy a sporting event, which is free for students to attend, or relax at the student union. There are countless choices available when it comes to escaping the grueling grind of being college student.

    The best way to have fun at MTSU is do anything in campus. At MTSU, there is Connection Point, the rec center, movies at the STU (Student Union Building), plays, and athletic events that are free for students. Connection Point are events that students can do activities like meet friends, make new ones, and curiosity. The rec center is regular fitness, swimming, climbing, or training. Movies at the SUB are often show on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 6:00 or 9:00 pm. There are often plays at the KUC (Keathley University Center) for entertainment. The athletic events are often shown for those that are interested in sports, support for their university, or spending time with family and friends. When I'm on the campus I often go to Connection Point events for curiosity. But there are certain Connection Point events that I can spend some quality time with friends. When I went to the rec center for the first time, I was surprised that the center had a rock-climbing wall. So, I climb the rock wall, and it reminded of time that I practice climbing at CLIMB in Nashville when I was in middle school. When the movies are shown at the SUB I often ignore them because, the movies that they show are mostly the ones I have already seen but, they were good movies. The athletic events that MTSU is playing against I don't often go because, I'm not interested in sports. But for those who are interested in sports I would recommend to go to these events.

    MTSU has many athletic teams, club teams, and intramurals. At times the athletic teams can be very good. Our football team was Conference USA East champions last year and the softball team were conference champions. Athletic events are poorly attended by students. Of the 22,000 students that go to MTSU roughly less than 300 will attend a football or basketball game and less than a 100 to any other game. MTSU athletics tries to get students to come by giving free give aways at most every game. MTSU has many intramural sports that play year round. Games are very competitive and there are quite a few rivalries between teams. MTSU also has a handful of club teams. The difference between these and intramurals is that they travel to play in tournaments. I am on the ultimate Frisbee club team and we have traveled to Chattanooga, TN, and Jacksonville, AL for our preseason tournaments. We are 7-2 in the preseason and have beaten teams such as Tennessee Knoxville, Chattanooga, UAB, and Samford. In our last tournament we went undefeated. If we are good enough when the season starts in the spring we can go to Regional's and hopefully Nationals in Wisconsin. MTSU will pay for everything except food which is a very sweet deal.

    There are numerous amounts of activities that you can do for fun here in the city of Murfreesboro. There are three movie theaters in this city that you can visit and have fun at. They are Premiere 6 Theatre, AMC Classic Murfreesboro 16, and AMC Stones River 9. There are two malls that have a wide variety of store selections that you can visit. They are Stones River Mall and the Avenue at Murfreesboro. There are also two bowling alleys in Murfreesboro. These are Murfreesboro Strike and Spare and Lanes Trains and Automobiles. These are all great methods of having a great time while at this City. In addition, there is a huge number of clubs at this university that will help you make great friends and memories while accomplishing great things. There is also a big selection of dining areas to eat at the campus. These could include Chick-Fil-A, Farmer's Market, or Panda Express.

    There're a lot of things to do for fun at Middle Tennessee State University. You can have just as much fun on campus as off campus. On campus have different activities throughout the year for MTSU students. For example, on Thursday November 21 the campus had a silent party. A silent party is a party where everyone in the room has headphones on and listening to the music the DJ is playing. Campus also has things like Halloween events, movie nights, tailgates, games, and homecoming events. All of these events are great turnouts. An event I went to was a skating event that was hosted at MTSU. At this event they had everything you needed to have fun. They had a Dj, different color lights, and skates to rent. The game room in the student union is also a fun addition to MTSU. Off campus is just as fun as on campus. Nashville is 37 miles away, where there's lots to do like go to the mall and the strip where there are lots of people walking, music, and bars if you are over 21.

    I'm sure many or everyone who's been to college has told you that college was the best times of their lives. At MTSU there are many great, fun things to do. For example, there is the REC center that allows students to play basketball, tennis, weightlifting, swimming and more. It even has a supercool rock-climbing wall that goes up three stories. Right across the road, literally about a 100 steps, is the Student Union Center. It is newly built with modern accessories; you can watch movies with friends or even play games in the game room together. The best part is that it offers food like Steak N' Shake, Panda Express, The Pod, and other choices. You can find plenty of things to do just from walking through the Student Union. My personal favorite and last thing to mention, that I do for fun is going to sports games, specifically basketball and football. Although the games are pretty fun, the real fun isn't until after the games and all the parties that occur with all the athletes of the school there. These parties, however, may be dangerous if you go with the wrong crowd but are great experiences as a college student. You get to dance, sing, and even meet new people. You may end up meeting the love of your life or your new long-life friend.
