Watch a movie

Weber State has a website for all WSU students to access while connected to campus Wi-Fi, and has many up-to-date movies and TV shows that you can catch up on while taking a break from homework.

Listen to music

This can be one of the most relaxing things during the school year. Take some time from your day to lay down and listen to your favorite songs or even download some new music. You can even share your music with friends, so you will never get bored of listening to your own.

Campus Events

Football games aren’t the only fun events to attend on campus. Weber State hosts a variety of guest speakers/lectures throughout the year. The Shaw Gallery also features many artists during the semester and has free admission for students. Additionally, free movies and documentaries are often shown in the Wildcat Theatre in the Student Union year round. So, if you’re not a big sports fan, check out some of these on-campus events and expand your entertainment horizons.
