College Senior

Local Atmosphere: The campus is on a military base, so while all the interactions I've had are friendly, 95% of the time I'm interacting with only actuve duty military or spouses. I have NEVER had an issue with feeling safe or safety, and of course we don't have sports teams. The closest town to base is Lemoore, and while they have a few things (tattoo shops, shopping, grocery stores, great movie theater) there isn't a whole lot to do culturally. The next town is about a fifteen minute drive. There is a mall, restaurants, etc. The biggest town is about an hour away and it's Fresno.
