2 College Freshman

Nightlife: Not many bars, most people just have fun on campus

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: Night life on campus consists of small get togethers. Basically a room of 10 to 20 students drinking and smoking. You tend to have to search for parties as a first year,but the city and all that it offers is only a 30 minute train ride.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: Yonkers actually has some pretty great Irish bars that are easy to get to on the bus and New York City obviously has an insane amount of nightlife. You definitely have to leave campus if you want anything more exciting than a group of people drinking on a lawn or half-heartedly dancing in the Blue Room.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: Again, this comes down to the fact that SLC is near the city. The on-campus nightlife is kind of quiet. Just people drinking or smoking together. Just hanging out and having a good time. The local off-campus nightlife is pretty lame/non-existent. Where most students go to have a solid nightlife is the city, where of course there are a variety of bars and clubs to go to. It's up to you if you want to "pay extra" for your nightlife by going into the city most weekends, but if you really want to, you can find things to do on-campus. There aren't really any bars or clubs that are very local in Bronxville or Yonkers though.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Nightlife is okay. There really aren't any huge, crazy parties like in state schools and bigger colleges. Mostly you just hang out with your group of friends. But if your willing to pay for the metro north and other expenses, NYC is very close by, and many people use this advantage. People like to go to bars/clubs in the city. There are lots to choose from.

The absence of fraternities and a recent increase in security means that nightlife can be a drag for those wanting noisy frat-style fiestas. When celebrations do happen, they’re swamped with party-starved students and, inevitably, broken up by authorities for being too crowded.

On-campus happenings at the Blue Room frequently have lines that wind out the door, but students seeking large-scale entertainment, bustling coed parties, or the high-end club scene head for the city. A revamped activities council has been broadening nighttime options with popular open mic nights, concerts, movies, dance parties, video game setups, and more.

Cheapest Place to Get a Drink
The Malt House
Organization Parties
At SLC, you can register your party with Student Affairs and have as many people as capacity will permit. There will be a security guard present to make sure there is no underage drinking, but underage students get around that by drinking before showing up. For students over 21, though, free booze all night- or at least until the handles are empty.
