The party scene at Marlboro is as diverse as the personalities on its campus. You want a party? OK. You want Gandhi, Britney Spears music, or Lord of the Rings involved? You make it happen. Whether it's a school-sponsored event like the ever-popular Queer Homecoming or a student-organized party like the smokin' Halloween Party, you'll be sure to see people from all parts of the campus come out to participate. On campus, when two or more people get together, it's automatically considered a party. Whether it's a nice meal friends have cooked together or a movie marathon starring Kevin Bacon, it all counts as having fun. Some parties are pretty disorganized and sparsely attended, while others have creative themes and concepts and involve the whole campus. One night, you could be listening to a New Age band performing in the campus center, and the next, you'll be shakin' your thang to Kylie Minogue in the library.
Off campus, the town of Brattleboro offers fun hippie cafés, movie theaters, and shopping. Though usually not a happening night spot, once a month Brattleboro does have Gallery Walk, where all the stores and galleries stay open late to display and celebrate local artists. This is the time when most students venture into town after dark. You never know what characters you'll meet!
