"Going to Mr. Bubble Tea before going to Swonder Ice Arena is one of my favorite things to do with my friends" --RaAnna T. '20

"My favorite place to hang out with friends in Evansville is at Kanpai. It is a great place to unwind after a long week and they have great fried rice!" -Colton S. '21

"I enjoy cute coffee shops like White Swan or River City. They are good spots to study too!" -Dakota R. '21

"When it's late at night and everything is closed, I really like to go to the Denny's by campus and eat with all my friends." -Mike D. '21

"G.D. Ritzy's is my favorite place in town. It's the best diner to go to with friends for the fun atmosphere and best chocolate ice cream in the world." -Sarah S. '21

"I like to drive around. There are so many beautiful places in Evansville, from the Riverside to various back roads, that are worth getting to know. I like to go on a drive whenever I'm stressed with school and just need to take a breather" -Jessica S. '22

"Evansville has such a great food truck culture with a wide variety of options from a Double-decker pizza bus (the double-decker bus was shipped from London!) to Chinese and everything in between! It is a fun way to try so many different foods, spend time with friends, and find new places around Evansville to hang out because they are always in a new location!" -Kennedy W. '23
