There seems to be a party for everyone on and around campus. Between frats, athlete houses, apartments, and dorms, weekends offer a plethora of red-cup opportunities. For underclassmen, the allure of frats and wild apartment parties are major draws, although only girls can truly float freely between gatherings. Guys may have a tougher time being allowed into parties with which they're not affiliated, so Westwood bars become a popular resort. The Village's two breweries are cozy and cheap getaways for upperclassmen, and it's a guarantee that you'll find a solid half of your Facebook friends milling about by the bar.
As far as off-campus entertainment, downtown clubs are only a costly cab ride or sober driver away. Most are pricey with long lines, but deep-pocketed upperclassmen often venture to the Sunset Strip with success. If trendy clubs aren't your thing, there are plenty of diversions, galleries, jumbo cinemas, and outdoor malls to hold your interest by night.
