2 College Junior

Nightlife: I have heard about the parties in Carbondale. it normally end up with a fight among the students at the end of the night. I do not got to parties so I would not know much about them

5 College Sophomore

Nightlife: You can do as much or as little as you want

3 College Student

Nightlife: I try to stay away

2 College Student

Nightlife: It's very boring. There's always a lot of people out but there's never anything happening. Whenever there's a party going on it's never really fun. It's just loud music playing and people standing around outside

3 College Senior

Nightlife: I enjoy when they have the concerts at the parks. Most of the time it is not to crazy and I can take my kids if I want. But most of the nightlife are at the Copper Dragon, Pinch Penny or the other bars on the strip near campus.
