3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There isn't much to do in our town. You have to go to downtown to see some museums and such.There isn't TOO much to do though, and places close pretty early.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: It is a tough academic school and quite expensive, but if you can excel and do well you can get good scholarships that will help pay for a lot of the schooling.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: I love Grand Rapids, it's just a nice place to be! And you could definitely do worse for both young adulthood as well as raising a family.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The campus is slower paced. I can catch a bus to downtown Grand Rapids, which has a faster pace but slower than most big cities. There are museums, cafes, restaurants that people can go to. There is a mall within walking distance of campus. We can rock climb, play tennis, racquetball, badminton, basketball, soccer-any sport really.

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Grand Rapids has so many different things to do. There are a lot of festivals.
