3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: The shopping is mediocre but because there are so many surrounding colleges, there are lots of people in the same age bracket and all looking for the same thing. There are several sporting events to attend year-round and with Montgomery being the capitol city, there are plenty of attractions.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: If you are interested in the Civil Rights Movement this is the place to be. Lots of cutural events during

Black History month. Music and events along the riverfront.

1 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: I would never live in Alabama. People are so judgmental here, it would be a hate crime just waiting to happen.

1 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Locals constantly come on campus but they are pretty friendly.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: no cars allowed for freshman so I don't get off much
