Slippery Rock is a quaint, rural town that thrives off the University’s presence. The town is a harmonious patchwork of college students and townies. In town, where Sheetz is usually the biggest attraction, there is little to do in the way of entertainment. If students want to catch a movie or do some serious shopping, they must drive to the adjacent towns of Grove City and Butler. However, campus offers many programs during the week, including art exhibits, plays, movies, and other late-night events.
When night falls, the parties get started, and the bars become animated with SRU’s finest. Though many complain that the town is small, quiet, and boring, others argue that with so many students in one place, there is always something going on.
