5 College Sophomore

Nightlife: I don't like to go to raging parties, on a weekend night I prefer to have a more relaxing kickback at someone's house. Most people here, at least once they have gotten acquainted, handle drinking and weed maturely - so for me the social scene is perfect. If you want frats and that kind of stuff, go to Chico. If you want a bunch of hip bars and clubs, go to a school in some city somewhere.

Nightlife: My school is definitely not a 'party' school. I study a lot!

Nightlife: There's pretty much only bars and beaches. There isn't really a "club", although I guess you could dance at the PEARL lounge in Eureka. Underage nightlife is pretty much nonexistent unless you like going to the mall (lol).

Nightlife: Since Arcata is a small town community often times on the weekends there will be many people walking to party as opposed to driving. I think this is definitely a benefit because many times wherever you are headed isn't too far away from where you started.
