4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The town as a whole is super cute and full of very friendly people. Downtown Grand Junction has a lot to offer and the little shops have the best people working in them.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: The atmosphere is very nice. There are mountains which you can view from anywhere basically. It's a very clean city and there are many parks. There are a few state parks and monuments around, which gives you some great outside activities. The locals are very nice towards the students, and always willing to help you out.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: We are surrounded by mountains so many people are into outdoor activities. This is a relatively safe town and while there aren't many places to go to in town for fun there are many places to hike, bike, and raft.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Grand Junction is a small city. There is a lot to do outdoors.

2 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: In the atmosphere currently reside in, there is not a lot of options if you do not like to go outdoors. Majority of what there is to do around here is outside. When the weather is cold, there is snowboarding/skiing. When it is warm, there is hiking, fishing and camping in the near buy mountains. As for other attractions there are not many. A small mall in town, a few parks with baseball fields, and a theater. Restaurants are larger around here, nice variety. If you are really looking of something to do you can find it, but we are not the most rural area.
