Fun Stuff in Albany!

by Apryl Jacobs | Jun 12, 2013
Hi everyone!  Hope your semesters are all off to a great start :)  I just wanted to give you all a few ideas for fun stuff to do around Albany. Visit the NYS Museum! 

 The exhibits are really awesome, and its a great thing to do with your friends as an escape from studying! 

Go ice skating at the Empire State Plaza or Swinburne outdoor ice rinks!  Get a big group together, and bundle up! 

Get frozen yogurt at TCBY! I’m sure you’ve spent your off-campus flex there before, but TCBY is doing a buy one get one 50% off for Valentine’s Day! 

Go see a show at Proctor’s Theatre!  You can check out the calendar on the site for upcoming productions. 

See a concert, comedian, or sporting event at the Times Union Center!  Buy tickets to see Tiesto, Kenny Chesney, or Miranda Lambert this semester!

Or you can always visit Crossgates Mall or Colonie Center to get your mall fix or to see a movie!

There are some other great events happening soon. Check out for more ideas. Study hard but remember to have some fun!  :) Apryl
