Local Atmosphere: I preferred not to stay in Ypsilanti for entertainment purposes due to safety

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Ypsilanti is not too big of a town, but Ann Arbor is right next door. Though Ypsi has many beautiful buildings, there is not too much to offer. In the winter, you will rarely see many people just hanging out.

2 College Student

Local Atmosphere: I'm not a big fan of Ypsi, but I grew up in Ann Arbor and it's a great little town. U of M'ers come across as snobbish towards EMU students though.

2 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: it's unsafe off campus and it's dead on the weekends usually
