We are continuing to highlight favorite activities of the UC pharmacy students. Owing to Charleston’s location where I-64, I-77, and I-79 meet, students and faculty alike will venture out for a little fun. So when we ask them where their favorite weekend getaway was, they all headed out in different directions. Swimming, boating, fishing, hiking, skiing, shopping, fine dining, antiquing, and many other activities are available in these locations:
Weekend Getaways (too many link to post them all!)
Hawk’s Nest State Park and New River Gorge
Sports are always a big part of the West Virginia lifestyle, and UCSOP students enjoy attended UC sporting events, basketball, tennis, and football, especially the rivalry games against nearby WV State University. They also will travel to Morgantown to see WVU play, and enjoy the WV Power Baseball games (http://www.milb.com/index.jsp?sid=t525) in Charleston.
Whether it is a relaxing weekend evening listening to a performer in Taylor Books, or a major concert at the Charleston Civic Center, or somewhere in between, Charleston has plenty to offer. The last post talked about Live on the Levee, which is a student and faculty favorite, and offers free concerts by the river every Friday night during the summer. Another favorite venue is the Clay Center, which hosts, the WV symphony, and a variety of shows throughout the year, including the Nutcracker performed by the Charleston Ballet in December. Additionally students enjoy music at small, downtown establishments, such as The Boulevard Tavern and The Empty Glass. You may even find an open mic night if you want to try out your talents.
