If you find yourself at UNCG without something to do on Friday and Saturday nights, you're probably not looking hard enough. Greensboro has a very vivid and active nightlife made up of several colorful bars and clubs, all offering something different to the community. Some play the latest popular music and are stylish places to see and be seen. Old Town is a great place for younger and older students alike because, in addition to serving alcohol, they also serve up some pretty tasty food late into the night. The gay scene is also alive and kicking. Don't miss the drag shows each Sunday night—not only is it great entertainment, but you can get in for free with your college ID.
If you prefer to stay out of the smoky atmosphere of bars and clubs, parties are always another option. Several organizations host events for their members, and there is always a fraternity throwing a bash. Although most parties aren't widely advertised, you'll hear more about them as you meet more people and spend more time on campus. Networking can do wonders for your social life.
