Living in Cumberland County, there are not many places to go to have fun. Our mall is tiny, the movie theater gets boring week after week, and there are few hang out places. However there are several places nearby in which college students can go for a new experience.


Clubs are a great way to party and have a good time meeting new people. Nearby Philadelphia clubs have a lot to offer. 

Club Shampoo located on Willow Street has a great environment for college kids. At Shampoo it is seventeen to enter and twenty-one to drink, making it a great place to party with people of the same age. Shampoo opens its door at 9pm and stays open until 2 in the morning. The General Admission cost to enter is $12 a person. Shampoo also offers an event called Lifted Sundays, which gives half-price admission to college students with proper ID. 

The Roxxy, another club located in Philadelphia at 939 Delaware Avenue, is also a great place to relax with friends. The Roxxy offers a night of dancing ad the latest music. Open bar packages and bottle services are also special features available. The Roxxy’s best offer includes a birthday package offering free admission to the guest of honor until 12 in the morning. The entire party is free until 11pm, and all drinks are reduced until midnight. 

Atlantic City is also a great place to have fun. Rapper Jay-Z opened up a 40/40 Club at 2120 Atlantic Avenue. The club is designed to be an interactive sports bar with a club-like music scene and overall vibe. The club is open seven days a week. Mondays thru Fridays it is open 5pm until 4am, and weekends it is open 12pm until 5am.
