The nightlife at Thomas can be labeled as quiet. During the week, students are usually studying, hanging out in their suites, or doing something in town. Parties are small and usually off campus; house parties happen all the time, but, again, they are quiet and not very big. Waterville is not a big city compared to some, but since Thomas is such a small school, it is not hard to meet new people and find something fun to do together.
The bar scene is not really popular with students, partially because there are not that many bars and nightclubs in Waterville. Champion's Fitness Club is popular with students during the middle of the week; they like to go there for music, dancing, and meeting new people. There are a few other bars where of-age students can go for a drink and to see some live entertainment like a band. The bars here are generally affordable, and some places even offer specials if you show your Thomas College student ID card. For students who are not of-age, there is always something to check out on and off campus throughout the week, such as comedians, special speakers, and activities like laser tag and Manhunt.
