3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: In Clarksville, you can hike at the Dunbar Cave, there is the Governor's Stadium Mall. Everyone on campus is nice and very helpful. Downtown Clarksville is near campus in walking distance. There are some museums there. As well, if you are a student, you can ride the transit system for free with the AP transit pass.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: It has a small town feel in a big way. There are tons of stores and food places.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: There's not much to do in Clarksville, but some people will find anything to do. My friends and I usually go to the movies or shopping. On the weekends most students go back home, if they don't stay to far away. Also since Nashville, is 45 minutes away, a lot of students go there to do whatever.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: It is not a big city but it within distance of one. It is a typical college town that offers many things for students to do off campus.

3 College Student

Local Atmosphere: Clarksville is considered a city in Tennessee, but aren't there suppose to be more things to do in the city? Here our options consist of going to see a movie, bowling with friends, or shopping; which is why I have an empty wallet. They're fairs sometimes which usually turn out to be a blast, although prices are through the roof! From rumors, I've heard Clarksville is getting more unsafe everyday, but I haven't had any personal unsafe experiences since I've moved here. Our cops do a great job. We have one mall for shopping and its not the biggest, so most the time I take rips to Nashville for shopping! Clarksville is full of parks though for sports and outside activities fun for everyone. The attitudes towards students seem t vary. Sometimes I meet teachers that have such an impact on my life that'll make me never forget them, there are teachers that are mean just so that you'll put in effort to learn, and then they're are teachers that don't seem to care if you pass or fail; it's your life and your fault.
