3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Most people would say it's a rough area, but it isn't that bad. There's little public transportation and the shopping is only okay

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The townies kind of just keep to themselves

2 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: A very boring, lackluster river town with not a lot too do and without a pretty view. Rock Island does not really have that small town charm, but feels like another boring suburb. People are very nice to students, but the college is not exactly located in the best part of town. It's not an awful place, but very boring and middle of nowhere-ish.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Some fun stuff, some shady neighborhoods.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: The campus itself is beautiful and there are some cute areas around the school, but once you get past the "Augie Bubble" as people like to call it, then the neighborhoods get a little sketchy. The davenport area is nice though and it's only a fifteen minute drive.
