3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: UGates is alright, unless the cops are called. Since the campus is dry now, anything on campus usually isn't worth the risk.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: Always parties going on at Ugates. Sports parties, and Hudson Lofts will be new, so we'll see what that's like

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: The nightlife at our school usually includes hanging out in the dorm rooms watching movies or sporting events. Also going to the gym and playing basketball or working out in the weight room are good nighttime activities. Going to different sporting events at our school to cheer on the teams is also fun.

What to Do if You're Not 21What's This?

Metro has 18+ nights on Wednesdays and Thursdays, which are very popular options for a lot of Behrend students. UGates, off-campus apartments, and the on-campus apartments have parties every weekend. If you prefer not to drink, head to Peach Street where there are restaurants, a large mall, ice cream shops, coffee shops, movie theaters, and just about anything else you could want to do. When the weather is nice, the beach is always fun.
