Fun & Adventure

At Keuka College, There's Something for Everyone

No matter what you like to do for fun, you'll find it at Keuka College.

Every year, we work with students to design a fresh and exciting calendar of events that includes concerts, comedians, movie nights, skiing and snowboarding trips, whitewater rafting excursions, fitness classes, and much more. Here's some of our favorite things to do:

Adventure

The Adventure Program's weekend trips are sure to give you an adrenaline rush. You can go camping, white water rafing, rock climbing, rappelling, hiking, snowboarding, and much more.

Athletics

Play for the Wolves, or become our #1 fan. Chill with Kacey (our fine-looking mascot), paint your face, and cheer on the Green & Gold as they face off in the athletics center or the Jephson Community Athletic Complex. And you definitely don't want to miss the Attack of the Pack rallies!

Concerts

We love live music at Keuka College, and it's on campus year-round. But every spring, we bring big acts—like Gym Class Heroes, American Authors, Hello Goodbye, We the Kings, and T-Pain—to campus.

Game Nights

Win amazing prizes like big-screen TVs, PlayStations, and Bluetooth speaker systems during game nights. The games change all the time, and range from bingo to trivia to The Price is Right. So c'mon down!

Keuka Lake

We're on the shores of one of the cleanest freshwater lakes in the world. Swim, kayak, canoe, paddle board, fish, or just relax with friends in front of a bonfire. There's always something fun to do on the lake.

Intramural Sports & Fitness

Get serious or get silly at the JMW Recreation & Athletics Center. Join an intramural league, take a Zumba class, or put on a big plastic bubble and crash into your pals and professors.

Live Entertainment

There’s almost always a cool performance at Keuka College. We bring great acts like comedians, magicians, hypnotists, and spoken word artists to campus throughout the year, and during open-mic nights, you and your friends get to be the stars of the show.

Clubs and Organizations

We have more than 40 clubs and organizations, and if you don’t find one that interests you, it’s easy to start your own! Clubs and organizations sponsor a lot of social and academic events, ranging from guest speakers to Pinterest parties. They’re also a great way to meet new people and get involved.

Theatre

Embrace your inner thespian and perform in one of our two annual productions. If performing isn't your thing, you can always take in the show: just grab a group of friends, hold up your glasses on a stick, and get your high-class culture on at the Red Barn Theatre.

Ropes Course

We use our ropes course for fun, adventure, and education. We have low and high elements, sometimes light it up with glowsticks and climb at night, and business professors even teach classes on it. (And yes, mom & dad, it's completely safe!)

Sunset Woods

If you like hiking, running, nature photography, or just walking through beautiful places, there's no better place than Sunset Woods. It's like a storybook enchanted forest, except with better trails and fewer (i.e., none that we know of) witches.

Travel

Clubs, classes, and professors are always sponsoring trips to new and exciting places like New York City, Paris, Costa Rica, Transylvania, and more. There are tips for fun, trips for service, and even Field Period™ trips that give you credit toward your degree.

Explore the Region

The Finger Lakes is one of the country's top vacation spots. From incredible fall foliage and farm markets to breathtaking waterfalls, there's something for everyone. And don't worry about getting to the hot spots—we have plenty of shuttle runs.

Hammock Park

Why wouldn't a college in one of the country's top vacation regions have a hammock park? Read a book, hang out with friends, take a snooze, or post selfies to make your friends at other schools jealous. (Don't feel bad. They can transfer.)

Music

From spur-of-the-moment karaoke nights to organized groups like QKApella, ConChords, Chorale, and Band, there are plenty of chances to play, sing, or just hang out and listen. You can also take private voice, guitar, or piano lessons here.

Spring Weekend

Ever want to put on a velcro suit and jump onto a velcro wall? You can do it here! You can also zip line by the lake, scale a climbing wall, and practice your backflip action in a mega-sized bounce house.

Video Gaming

Win amazing prizes during tournament nights, or game in your room or residence hall lounge (they have gigantic TVs) on our blazing-fast (40Gbps) Internet. If being a spectator is more your thing, you can hang out and watch our varsity eSports team compete in League of Legends.

Dances

There’s dances for all occasions throughout the year, and students plan the annual semi-formal each year. Enjoy a wonderful night out on the town in one of the region’s hottest places to go.
