Weekend Activities Sign-Up

The school weeks are BUSY! When Friday arrives, it is nice to consider some free time for sleep, laundry, extra studying, and of course, some fun!

Each weekend, there are activities planned for students. Outings can be as simple as movies at a local theatre or trips to Wal-Mart to stock up on supplies, to more elaborate excursions such as dinner at a restaurant and museum visit or a play at one of the many beautiful theatres in the Twin Cities. The Mall of America is 45 minutes from campus and is a popular weekend destination for shopping and eating. There are frequent trips to watch the many Minnesota professional sports teams (Timberwolves, Wild, Loons, Vikings, Lynx, and Twins) and lots of opportunities for outdoor recreation like biking, hiking trails, skiing, snowshoeing, fishing, etc.

On campus, the Sports Complex is open for working out, three-on-three basketball, volleyball, open skating, soccer, and drone flying, etc. The Lower Hub has space to play foosball, pool, and ping pong, and the Parade Field is a popular spot for students to gather for their favorite yard games like spike ball, volleyball, badminton, frisbee, football, bean bags, etc. And of course, don't forget there are also frequent movies, bonfires, and game nights in the dorms too!
