The Hatfield campus is a lively, diverse, welcoming community.
Recreational activities- Many recreational activities are available at Hatfield (e.g., kayaking, fishing, volleyball, crabbing, clamming, and basketball), at the Newport Recreational Center (gym, pool, exercise classes; passes available), and in the surrounding areas (surfing, hiking, paddle boarding, mountain biking, whale watching, fishing, disc golf, etc).
Food and drink- Local restaurants host regular events, such as local live music. Many restaurants serve fresh and local seafood. Visit the weekly Newport Farmers Market every Saturday for high-quality locally grown produce, meats, and crafts.
Art, culture, and museums- The Oregon Coast Aquarium is steps away from the Hatfield campus and offers exhibits focused on the flora and fauna native to the Oregon Coast along with other marine species from around the world.
Student Clubs- The Ocean11 marine club and the Hatfield Student Organization provide engagement opportunities outside the classroom that support social, recreational, intellectual, and personal development opportunities for students.
