2 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: There is not anything in Pippa passes,KY. There is not any locals because the entire town is literally the college. The closest store of any kind is in Hazard,KY which is about thirty minutes away.

Local Atmosphere: There's not much to do in Pippa Passes or the surrounding community. If you're looking for a life outside of school, it just isn't happening. The next town over, Hindman, has a couple of restaurants, a grocery store, and a small strip mall. Expect to travel at least a half an hour to Hazard, KY to go to Walmart, Game Stop, or other stores. The nearest "big city" is Huntington, WV, which is two hours away.

2 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There isn't much to do at or around campus unless you drive about an hour to the closest city.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Pippa Passes is a beautiful community, there is very little crime, everybody seems to be very nice, but they have very little to offer.
