In addition to the numerous opportunities to participate in research activities, recreational and educational opportunities are plentiful. Students enjoy fishing, swimming, biking, canoeing, and nature photography both on campus and on nearby state land.  Visit the Wild Center or Adirondack Experience, some of the finest nature, history and art exhibits and museums  in the United States. The Adirondack Interpretive Center, located on campus, has a wide variety of lectures, workshops and naturalist guided trail walks to participate in.

Living for a summer on Newcomb Campus also provides a unique experience of sharing the comradeship of fellow workers and researchers.  Most students stay in  bunk-type housing units with electric heat and light, sharing living space with other students. Students eat in the Rich Lake Dining Center (subsidized weekly meal charge) where you can meet agency scientists, students and researchers from across the globe.
