Hang Out and Play

Making sure you have opportunities to connect with your peers and build relationships while at Parkside is just as important to us as your academic success. If you're looking for a place to hang out on a Friday night, watch a great movie, or spend some time working on a group project, Parkside has a perfect place for you. Head down to the Den for food and fun, stop by the cinema to watch the latest blockbuster hit, walk over to the Sports and Activities center for a game of three-on-three, or settle in at the library to get some homework done.

There are no upcoming events at this time. Please check back later.
