4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: On the same road the school is located, there are tons of restaurants, a big Meijer, an imax theater, and many others places I don't know of. Downtown Grand Rapids isn't far away either.

Local Atmosphere: If you're a city person, then you'll love it. Personally I prefer to lots of grass and not a lot of people but there is an aspect of community that's rare for most big cities.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: We live close to downtown grand rapids which provides a lot of things to do (art prize, swing dancing) , and we are also near Knapp corner (movie theater, restaurants, Meijer)

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The atmosphere is right outside of Grand Rapids, so there is usually always something to do

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Grand Rapids is a very up and coming area with plenty to experience. Anything from dining, to recreation, to entertainment exist in the area in numerous supply.
