3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Anderson is still a very poverty stricken area. It depends on where in town you live as to your security and comfort. While there is decent shopping and food variety available, the security off of campus cannot be discounted.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Anderson is a town in the process of revitalizing its downtown area. The City Council is trying very hard to bring in businesses that students and families both will enjoy. It takes time for these things to come though. Anderson is only about a half hour away from Indianapolis, which is fantastic. There is so much to do in Indy!

2 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Although the cost of living is quite cheap, there are no public transportation, no shopping nearby, no parks or recreations, nor any museums or cultural attractions.
