2 College Junior

Nightlife: There is no night life here on campus. All halls are dry except for one. So even if you're 21 in a non alcohol hall you cannot drink. But downtown is close by and San Antonio has some great spots as far as on the actual campus its not as awesome as the stories from other schools that I hear.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: I do not party so I never hear about them.

2 College Junior

Nightlife: You have to go away from campus for nightlife.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: I have never really heard of crazy parties that go on at night on campus. Many students go out to have a good time.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: On campus there are no parties, I have only been to one, the nightlife in school is calm no loud music or heavy noises.

History
View all previous student authors

Our Lady of the Lake is quiet at night, and there are seldom any parties on campus. People usually just have kick-backs on campus, and groups of people will get together to watch a basketball game with food and soda, play video games, watch a movie/TV, or play a basketball game outside. At times, it can get pretty loud, but campus is usually quiet and tranquil. Most parties are at off-campus apartments and are usually sponsored by the Greek organizations.

Going to clubs and bars around San Antonio is fairly popular, with downtown being a hot destination. The city has a large amount of bars and clubs, and in terms of popularity, no one bar or club stands out above the rest. The bars and clubs are fun, but if that’s not your scene, there are other things to do downtown, as well. Overall, if you want to be a part of the social clique at OLLU, then chances are very good that you will run into them at the bars or clubs.
