3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Since it's a Christian school we are a small but tight nit group that we call the ACU bubble. We feel safe here and know pretty much everyone on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: It's in a nice area where there is a large mall nearby and also plenty of places to eat. It is in a nicer part of town where you feel safe.

3 College Student

Local Atmosphere: Nice community with lots of different stores to go to

4 College Student

Local Atmosphere: Small Town Feel – College feels like a small community in a big city

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Paradise Valley: Reality? I have lived in Arizona all my life. I have had the priviledge of experiencing many of the smaller cites within the greater Phoenix area. The school that I attend is located at the boarder of Phoenix and Paradise Valley, Arizona. Located in such an area can be of both convenience and inconvenience. Just to the west of our lovely little school there are "mountains", or as most out-of-state people would call them, giant hills. Paradise Valley Mall is located to the east of us, but requires a minor drive. Although we live in a huge city with so many attractions to choose from, they are not necessarily located nearby for vibrant college life. In order to enjoy everything Arizona offers, such as the downtown museums and sports complexes, much planning, preparation, and money are required.
