3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: There isn't a lot to do in Abilene. Everyone is fairly nice. The roads suck!!!!!

3 College Student

Local Atmosphere: Everybody is Abilene is very nice and caring, with most people ready to help you in your situation. There are a few activities available for students to do off campus, such as Prime Time (a amusement park), minature golf, movie theaters, and a shopping mall. It is a very religious town and the town unites for certain events.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Abilene is a very old town, one of the first old west towns. It has a LOT of historical things going on. It has three universities in this town so very university oriented. It has a zoo, cultural center, performing arts center, ok shopping, and has the most churches per capita of the entire United States (I'm told), so many churches to visit.
