4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: I like the small town, it isn't overwhelming like a big city school. The downtown area is rather nice.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: The atmosphere here is great and there is a lot to do. You just need to venture out and be willing to spend a little money. It is very flat in BG, so there isn't much of a scenery.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The local atmosphere revolves around the local bars because they are 18 years or older, so most college student can attend.

3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: If you don't like to drink or go to the bars you're out of luck

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Bowling Green is a very small, college town; there isn't much to do outside of campus. That being said, the things that there is are very fun. The main street downtown is full of restaurants and bars, giving students plenty of places to eat and experience night life. There are a couple of shopping centers in the area. If you can't find something to do in town, you don't have to travel far to find something to your liking.
