Things to do On-Campus

     Here at W&J we have a very active student activities board (S.A.B.) You will see tons of posters and flyers all over campus advertising S.A.B trips and activities. During the semester they plan activities like Big bingo, movie nights, build-a-bear nights, cupcake nights, and live performers and music. They will also plan trips to musicals in Pittsburgh and a big trip to New York City.


     During the evenings and on the weekend you can go to The Hub, which is the student activities center, and play video games, watch movies, or go to Montis. Montis offers free food and milkshakes on Friday and Saturday nights, along with karaoke and pool tables.
