Sometimes, it can feel like there isn’t much to do in this town if you’re under 21, and at some point, house parties just don’t do it anymore. Don’t worry, there are plenty of activities for you youngsters in this great town of ours.
The Bowl, Bozeman’s only public bowling alley, is one of the more popular spots in town. With Monday night specials, it won’t break the bank, and it’s a great place to bring a group or make new friends.
You don’t have to travel far to have some fun. The Rec Center has billiards and bowling, big screen TVs, musical shows and you can even rent video games. Or check out a cheap flick at the Procrastinator Theater.

Norris Hot Springs
These natural hot springs provide the perfect setting to soak away school stresses. Check out their live music on the weekend, grab a bite to eat, and relax with friends at this hot spot. And you can’t beat the views on the 30-minute jaunt outside Bozeman.

MSU works hard to provide alcohol-free events for students. Mingle with your neighbors at RHA events. Get involved in one of MSU’s many clubs. Join an intramural team. These activities provide wonderful opportunities to meet new friends, get to know the school, and there’s always something to do.

Make the most of your college experience. Don’t get stuck in a rut. Expand your horizons and try new things. That’s what the college experience is about, after all.
