Boring weekends can turn into fun by walking, taking the bus or driv- ing to events around the Riverside community.

Fairmont park and Shamel park are no more than ten minutes away. Students enjoy going to swim, play tennis, BBQ, fish or get away from school and enjoy a day under the sun. Riverside resident Evelyn Bower said, “My favorite thing to do is to climb Mount. Rubidoux when I’m bored and just feel like going for a hike.”

California Baptist University’s stu- dents enjoy the Riverside Plaza as well, because it has it all; Trader Joe’s for delicious food and other items, Yule dresses can be found in the two-story Forever 21, home decor stores to adorn the walls in the living room, Gamestop for buying the newest video games and challenging friends to battle.

Visit the Regal Stadium 16 movie theatre to see the new movie ‘Courageous,’ restaurants and dessert places such as Temptations Chocolate Factory for that late night sweet tooth.

Sun. Oct. 16, the Riverside Plaza showcase will take place with fresh and new live music. ‘Main Street Entertainment’s’ weekly live events in- clude festivals, concerts, karaoke and car shows.

Visit downtown and go to the ‘Pumpkin Patch’ to pick out the per- fect pumpkin for the Halloween sea- son and enjoy the ‘Ghost Walk’ by the Mission Inn.

Sophomore Rebecca Bernard said, “I like going downtown to visit its art museums and all of the other historic museums.”

On campus, CBU is hosting the “Light the Night” two mile walk on Oct. 22 starting at 6 p.m. to help raise funds for fighting Leukemia. Commuter Cyerra Hawkins said, “I want to volunteer at the walk to make a difference and participate in some- thing bigger than myself.”

With so many activities, places to shop and restaurants to dine in, there is no reason to be bored again.
