2 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: really not much to do off campus but i have so much to do on campus i don't mind

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: My school is located in a little town. There are not many big attractions near by but it is a great location if you love the outdoors. There are many places very close to campus that you can go to if you're looking for something to do outside. Safety is great since it's located in a small town and everyone is very friendly.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: You have to travel a distance to find the better stores and restaurants.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: My mom likes it better than I do. But, I'm a freshman and trying to get used to things around campus. It is a nice, clean town, and easy to get around from place to place.

Local Atmosphere: There is nothing in Emory, VA. They got rid of the only good food place to eat (the Deli). If you go out to Abingdon or Bristol it's okay.
