3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There are some good restaurants and other things to do, but there isn't much of a variety. The town surrounding this school is fairly small. Other than that, there are things to do and places to go. Although, the local attitude towards students is not too great, but they do have to deal with a bunch of college students.

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The town is beautiful, right on the lake and have many area attractions for visitors. Too expensive to live in after graduation.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: The town runs in to other cities nearby making it feel like a town very spread out. Easy to catch the train to Chicago.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: It's located in Aurora, which is a big city, but theres not much to do that's close to campus. It's a residential campus, but the houses are old, and in close proximity of one another, so parking sucks.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Aurora isn't the best town but there is a lot to do 25 minutes out if town.
