The general consensus of Linfield students, since most are under 21, is that the parties are localized at the fraternities. Under-21 students usually hang out with friends, heading into town to eat at Serendipity or Third Street Pizza. While there are plenty of bars and hangouts to choose from in the area, in general, most students are more likely to spend their Friday and Saturday nights at a local fraternity or campus party than at a bar off campus.
Most Linfield students have a great time at on- or off-campus parties rather than off-campus bars. There are live bands on campus, as well as theater events, and a lot of students have their own rock bands or play guitar or piano, so there is bound to be a lively group of students putting something together somewhere. Also, the College is great about putting events together, so there is always something to do on campus. Sports and Greek life at Linfield are also a plus, as there are always events and activities that students can get involved with. In addition, students at Linfield are very social, so there will always be groups of students up to something.
