Nightlife here isn't too bad. Some complain that you have to drive an hour to Charlotte to really do anything, but an hour's distance isn't bad. Plus, there are some things in town to do, such as clubs, bars, movies, and house parties. There are a good amount of house parties to go to, as long as you make friends (which is not hard here).
The clubs and bars in town are pretty cheap, for entrance and for drinks. It's mostly the College crowd, too. There are bands that play around town, as well. If you choose to go to Charlotte for some nightlife, you will find a ton of stuff, and it's usually not much more expensive than staying in town. Underage students can still get into the clubs, which is fun with friends. They can also go to the movies right in town.
