3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Elms College is located in Chicopee, Massachusetts, it is relatively quiet in the area. No attractions or shopping areas are within walking distance, all of which is mostly driving distance. Attractions that take place on campus is enjoyable, but crowded due to the limited space the college has to offer.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There is the Holyoke mall nearby a lot of stores and chicopee is overall a safe town.

College Junior

Local Atmosphere: I am a commuter, I just want to get there and get home, nothing in between

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Elms College feels very small and homey. It's a comfortable place to be where you feel connected to people, much unlike the state school I used to attend. It's easy to get from one place to another and it's next to impossible to get lost. But there are many things to do in the area that are off-campus, so it's not like you're missing out on anything.

Local Atmosphere: In the direct surrounding area of the campus there is not a whole lot of activity, however a short distance away is the town of North Hampton, full of little shops and a very safe atmosphere! A lot of fun for all ages.
