Wildcat Lanes' eight bowling alleys and recreation center foster fun times and have helped the establishment earn the title of Weber State University's official bowling alley. Bowlers clad in slick-bottomed rental shoes launch marble orbs down lanes as automatic scoring machines tally fallen pins. Like pep talks from Mickey Goldmill, optional automated bumpers prevent dreams of a strike from falling into the gutter. Corn chips dive into warm, gooey cheese to sate roaring appetites. Twelve-pocket billiard tables, air hockey tables, and video games grant guests a welcome reprieve from the stresses of hunting down stationary bowling pins and bits of nacho cheese left on a fellow bowler's lapel.

Merpati Putih is an ancient Indonesian practice that combines fitness, breathing exercises, meditation, and self-defense. Highly trained instructors Nate and Mike Zeleznick’s passion and respect for the martial art have culminated in MP USA. At the accredited Merpati Putih martial-arts school, they pass on these skills in classes for children and adults of any fitness level, drawing from their work with high-ranking Merpati Putih specialists. Beyond teaching technical skills, sessions for adults focus on overall fitness and bolstering the connection between mind and body, and kids’ classes impart values such as self-confidence, manners, and responsibility. The Zeleznicks also arm women with the tools to defend themselves in self-defense classes.

Dark Sun Studios' team of audio, lighting, and film experts draws on decades of production experience to create music videos, films, commercials, and other media. The hands-on class begins with a lesson in the fundamental physics of lighting and quantum equations to determine how many gaffers it takes to screw in a light bulb. Then multimedia professionals illuminate the basics of shot composition and lighting setup, first with Dark Sun's studio-grade Cine-Lux lighting and then with simple and inexpensive hardware store materials. Students utilize the 2,500-square-foot studio's various backdrops, lighting fixtures, and high ceilings as they experiment with light, shadow, and contrast. The class then brings the limelight to the outdoors, where they learn how to mimic moonlight, do battle with dusk, and simulate black holes using only an arc lamp and a roll of duct tape. After a discussion on at-home lighting equipment, everyone leaves with a complimentary handbook.
