3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: It is not bad but it is not the place for me.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: I have lived here my whole life, I like it here and can always find something to do. There is the park, the nature center, the dirt biking area, the reservoir, and a little drive will take you to the mountains or Bishop's Castle. There are even plenty of things to do in the winter.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Everyone is really nice here. It's very open and welcoming.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Pueblo is a college town. Since the University is what makes up most of the population, there are students everywhere. Some restaurants and stores in town offer discounts for CSU-P students, as well. Pueblo is about a 40-minute drive from Colorado Springs, and Colorado Springs is where all of the attractions, sightseeing, and shopping areas are. Students usually head over to Colorado Springs on the weekends to hang out and do some errands. Some of the famous big things to do in Colorado Springs include Garden of the Gods, Seven Falls, an old ghost town, the Incline, Pikes Peak, and other sightseeing adventures. These attractions take a few hours each to get to, so taking advantage of everything Colorado Springs has to offer will take a few weeks.

Pueblo has a downtown where there are a lot of little shops and restaurants, but not much else goes on in the town. The dorms clear out on the weekends due to people going to Colorado Springs or back home. The convenient thing about Pueblo is that there is hardly any crime. Although there aren't many police officers around, they're not needed too much anyway, so there is no trouble going out late with your friends. Also, there is only one theater in town; it's about a mile from the school, and since it's small, there aren't a lot of showings.
