AC students know how to balance play with work. Most work hard and play hard, often sacrificing sleep so they can do both. Most of the nightlife at AC revolves around house parties, and there is usually a party going on Wednesday through Saturday. Most students work hard and take Sunday through Tuesday off from partying, but if you want to go out, you can probably find a place to do it any day of the week.
Most Greek groups have a specific night every week when they party, and the fraternities and sororities throw most of the big, themed parties, with anyone welcome once the party opens around 10. Beer pong, flip cup, and dancing are a must at these. Don't forget to cover your ears at midnight when the Greek group hosting the party starts to sing their song at the top of their voice and shake the floor with their jumping—it is entertaining to watch though.
If there are no parties happening or you just want a change of pace, you can always head over and hang with the crowd at one of the local bars. For students who are 21, there is not much of a club or bar scene in Sherman, but there's always a group willing to go to happy hour at Applebee's or Cellarman's, which is the rustic local pub a mile off campus. If you're really craving a crazy club and bar scene, Dallas and its big city life are only an hour away.
