  1. Take up the flute or buy an oil paint set. there is something that will make you excited to stay in on a Friday night.
  2. Go explore the town. There’s plenty to do both on and off campus.
  3. Go apple picking with your friends at Fruit Valley Orchards or Ontario Orchards is a good way to relax and have fun.
  4.  Shaun Cassidy Fan Club  is a great option if you’re looking for something to do on a Saturday night on campus. The Improv is from 8:00pm-9:00pm in the Marano Campus Center Arena.
