What are the most popular student activities/groups?

Taylor students become very involved with activities. I am not a part of any organizations, but I know a lot of people who are, and they thoroughly enjoy it. 99% of all dorm rooms are either open or unlocked at any time of the day/night. This is because of our "Community" aspect. We all get to know every single person on our wing, as well as become socially comfortable with those people. I have only heard once or twice where someone got an iPod or money stolen from their rooms, and that was when a group of non-students visited. Students trust their neighbors, and it's a great feeling when the majority of the rooms on a wing are open and welcoming. Athletic events are sporadic in popularity. Like I said, a lot of fans can show one game, and the next would have barely any fans. Guest speakers usually come and speak at Chapel, in which the majority of students attend already. The dating scene can either be awesome or awkward, I feel like it's a coin toss. The social "norms" of dating at Taylor make it very hard to casually court someone. It is nothing like the real world of dating. I met my closest friends through class and by living on the same wing as them. This is the usual way Taylor students meet their "besties." If i'm awake at 2am on a Tuesday I'm either playing video games with a friend or hanging out in the hallway. People do not party often. Any kind of partying (including legal) is prohibited by Taylors LTC. There is an underground group of people who do party, but I feel like this group of people do not ever reach more than 40 people. No frats, no sororities. Non-drinking activities is what the majority of students partake in during the weekend. These things include wing events, pick-a-dates (big groups of guy/girls hang out somewhere), go see a movie, play music, stargazing or hit up Ivanhoes (the local ice cream shop).
