Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Between the strict campus policies on alcohol and the fact that Cedar Crest is not a party school, there isn't much of a traditional nightlife on campus. But students looking for a college nightlife scene have many options off campus.

Other colleges in the area often have parties that Cedar Crest students can attend, or they can venture to Allentown to check out one of the many bars and clubs that the area has to offer. Most venues are only open to those 21-and-up, but there are underage nights at Maingate and Stonewall once a week.
