3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Abilene does not have many attractions or activities. There is nothing necessarily special about the city. However, if you find a great friend group, the possibilities are endless!

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: It is a small place with the big city feel to it. It is up and coming with the new places to eat at as well as entertainment. There are several places for a vast variety of students to either study, converse, or hangout.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: People are friendly, but there is not much to do.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Really nice city with a small town atmosphere. There are ballet and opera houses here and some of the prettiest, cleanest parks I have seen.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Abilene is a very small, quiet town and while the locals are extremely nice, I am more of a city person. Abilene is too small and too country for my taste therefore I would not want to live there after college.
