Local Atmosphere: I've lived here my whole life, so I'm a little sick of the same place all the time. Overall though i hear Holland is a nice place to live from outsiders. Beautiful scenery with the lake near by and dunes to hike. Parks everywhere! Overall it is an okay place to live, not too much crime, decent people.

4 College Student

Local Atmosphere: For the Lansing campus, there are many local attractions nearby. If you are into the arts, there is a local theatre. The mall is nearby. Michigan State University is close to Davenport and it offers many sporting events as well as theatrical events. Local attitude toward the students in not noticeable as all students are commuters and would fit into their local community without detection.

5 College Student

Local Atmosphere: Davenport University is located in Grand Rapids, MI. This is a very large town and there are many other colleges near by to socialize with. There is always something to do in Grand Rapids with a short drive from campus.
