3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Small town living; safe but not a lot of exciting things to do. Friendly people who take pride in the university. Beautiful parks nearby. Traveling about 30 min will bring you to movie theaters, shopping and more assortment of restaurants.{

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: It's located in a small town with not much to do off campus. The campus activities board and the intermural board always make sure the students have something to do. The closest place to go shopping, or a somewhere with a variety of food is a half hour away.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Philippi is a small historical town. There are some good restaurants like Lil' Moes, Smokey Rays, and Fox's Pizza. There are parks and recreational places around the surrounding area. Philippi is a quite enjoyable town, but there are limited activites for college students.
