The River walk is one of the best things to do when you are bored at UA. You can walk to it from the freshman dorms and I recommend going around Christmas time when all the different Christmas trees are up.

Eat at Buffalo Phils

When your parents come to town make sure they take you here and order the Buffalo chicken dip

Go to a basketball and/or baseball game

We may be a football school, but go to a basketball or baseball game they are just as fun

Try crawfish
