3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Lot of diversity for a smaller town

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There is plenty to do on campus and off campus. I just wish there were more outdoorsy places, such as woods to hike in.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There is usually always something to do off campus. from bowling, working out, countless eating restaurants to get together for lunch or dinner with friends. shopping for clothes, antiques, jewelry, bakeries and much more are available. the lake is open and free to all students who want to go kayaking, canoeing, and paddle boating. cultural events are held in the fall and in the spring for the community in the nearby parks which go on all day, and many foods for sampling are always being made, including concerts.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Small town and very minimal attractions of interest.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Buena Vista is a perfect small school campus because of the city of Storm Lake. It's perfectly safe to go for a walk around and outside of campus and there's little shops on mainstreet to visit, including a candy shop with amazing chocolate covered coffee beans.
