1 College Senior

Nightlife: Gotta get out of town...again, the old people

5 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Being in Greek Life has it's perks. There's always something to do on the weekends whether it's at the local bar/club or at a house party; and you'll always find multiple people you know anywhere you go.

FAU does not have any on-campus houses. To go to a college party, students must travel off campus. Many fraternities throw fun parties on the weekends; however, during the week, clubs are the place to be. Every club/bar has its most popular night during the week. Often, there are theme nights and ladies' nights during the week, as well. Murphy's is a local bar and is the most popular choice on Tuesday nights. Scoop is a brand-new bar and offers something for everyone, even for those under 21.

Clubs and bars are generally more fun than any party, and although it does cost a cover charge to get in, there are many promoters that go to FAU, and it's very easy to get on a list and get in at a reduced rate. Being so close to West Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale, students can also enjoy the nightlife of these cities. Ibiza in West Palm and Slim's in Fort Lauderdale are popular choices, but clubgoers must be 21 or older to get in. Overall, Boca Raton is not much of a college town; therefore, the nightlife is severely lacking. However, your time is what you make of it. Students are able to find fun things to do and enjoy themselves.
