For fun, there's "a TON of things going on": weekly dance parties and concerts, lectures, an on-campus museum, free yoga classes, zumba, and tons of festivals. People "pay a lot of money to see bands and they support music and musicians here," and theatre is also "very, very big and popular." Athletics get less emphasis, and Greek life is non-existant. Students recieve email digests of all the events on campus, and for those who want to get off campus, it's easy to take a bus into White Plains or take the train into Manhattan. "The question isn't 'What to do for fun?' but rather 'Where do you even start?'" Professors usually "know a lot about what's going on" and will often get free tickets to performances for students. While the Student Center (Stood) and library facilities are admittedly great ("there are different levels, so students never have to be isolated in one spot"), many say that Purchase could improve the dorms, as "a lot of the on-campus living needs to be updated badly."
