5 College Student

Local Atmosphere: Small town living, but the community is supportive of the school. It's a great place to live.

3 College Student

Local Atmosphere: It's a typical small town- there are a lot of pretty cool little shops, but not very much variety, etc. etc. If you want city things, you go into Lincoln (only a 20 minute drive).

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The town of Seward is full of friendly locals that welcome the students with open arms. Seward is a small town and the sense of community is very strong; I run into my professors at church and at the super market. At the beginning of the year, the local businesses put on a fair for the students where they passed out free goodies and coupons to use later in the year. However, since Seward is a rather small town, there aren't too many activities to do. There's a bowling alley and a movie theater and a Walmart, but that's about it as far as entertainment. When it's nice outside though, there are quite a few parks and a frisbee golf course.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: CUNE is located in a small town with a great atmosphere. The next door church often has events for the students.

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Concordia University is located in a very friendly little town that loves to see us college kids out and about. Locals enjoy making conversation with the college kids and learning more about us personally. If we do want to escape small town life, Lincoln is only 25 minutes away and serves as a great weekend get away for shopping and food and UNL sporting events.
