Non-existing. Course load is too demanding for many students which leaves only little room for other activities.

The school is focused on engineering. Any class room, lab, or space that is used by the engineering/science community is up to date. The buildings that are occupied by the humanities and social sciences are outdated.

The most popular activities at this school are the events that are organized by the fraternities and sororities. The unique activities are the research opportunities with the space and engineering community that is present in this town. If you are a non-science/engineering student. The opportunities are none.
