Student Author OverviewWhat's This?
Nightlife at Hampton can certainly be a pain for freshmen and sophomores and those without vehicles. If there isn't a party on campus, nightlife within walking distance of the campus is uneventful and not fulfilling. House parties are generally the alternative for students 21 and under. If you are older and licensed, there's a wider selection of parties and hangouts. The Peninsula Town Center, which is about 10 minutes away from campus, has a multitude of stores, dining, and other retail. It's a great place to catch a movie, shop, or unwind from a long week of classes and studying.
Traveling to neighboring cities offers more fun things to do such as lounges and clubs for the older undergrad and graduate students. Granby Street in Norfolk is pretty popular, and so is Virginia Beach. Despite the distance, the great people and scenery are definitely worth the drive.
On the nights with nothing to do, host a movie night with friends in the dorm or make plans in advance. Always have a back up plan!
