There are a lot of places to travel to, like Mexico, Las Vegas, LA, San Francisco and so on, but either you need a car or have to fly, because most places are too far away for the bus.

Personal comments
The dorms on campus are very nice. Even though the dorm where I live is in the far south, I couldn't ask for more, because it is one of the only dorms, where you have your own bedroom.
