3 College Junior

Nightlife: There are only 4 bars in town and they are all right next to each other. Some places have great bands that come through and jam but most play the Arcata Theater Lounge. Coming from Los Angeles, there's significantly less to do here but the change of pace is nice.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: ITs fun to go out with friends and party

2 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Honestly you either have to make your own parties or find someone with connections because the nightlife is always the same. There is no variety, and it makes life even duller here.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: I am not a big party person but there are parties every weekend and some of them start on thursday nights. I have been to few and they have always been fun. The nicest one is a bonfire in the beach.

4 College Junior

Nightlife: The night life is pretty good. It is a great way to socialize and enjoy yourself after working hard during the school week.
