Local Atmosphere: Springfield is focused on local development and support. Downtown offers a lot of local businesses, which makes for a cool environment.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: i love the city. Its great. Lots of things to do.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: I don't often do much off campus unless I am getting something to eat. Sometimes I go to the mall, and when I do, people pretty much don't take notice. At restaurants, people are generally very polite and easy to talk to.

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Springfield, MO near Evangel University has many shopping options. Also, there is beautiful scenery, parks, and recreational activities if one is willing to drive a little ways away from the school, but no more than 20 minutes. Locals treat students extremely kindly and some even open their homes for a few if needed for just a day in a real home, as opposed to a dorm room and on-campus.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Downtown is awesome. Artwalk every first friday!
