Walking through the halls of the dorms on a Thursday night is quite the scene. There are girls running to and from the bathroom with curled hair and high heels and guys walking around in sharp attire getting ready for a fun-filled night out. The smell of blow-dried hair, hair gel, and make-up accumulate in the halls. Slowly, it becomes quieter as more and more students leave for their outings, until the dorms have an eerie silence. The local bars, especially Liffey, and clubs in the city are the usual spots for students 21 and over. Those underage usually take the bus and subway into Manhattan for a delectable dinner and delicious frozen yogurt with friends. As students find themselves progressively getting low on money, on-campus parties become the better option—students gather in dorm rooms with the company of friends and the entertainment of alcohol.
The Department of Student Activities also offers various events and outings. At the beginning of the school year, the college hosts club events every Thursday for those 18 and over at the TBA Lounge, a nightclub in New York City. The school also offers trips and transportation to the mall, the zoo, the aquarium, and Six Flags Great Adventure. Student Activities hosts concerts and numerous movie nights in the College’s student center, Alumnae Pavilion.
