College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: I can not say because I am doing online schooling so I am still in Palm City

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: We have Downtown which is so cute. There's a bunch of little shops, food places and bars to wander in to. Also, Saturday and Sunday mornings, downtown has this farmers market thing where local owners can come show of their awesome art, crafts and food. Also, the beach is literally ten minutes away, you could easily bike there.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: From what I remember, Melbourne is a nice little beach town on the east coast of Florida. What's not to love about that?!!?

2 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: It's an hour from Orlando. That's about the best thing about it.

College Senior

Local Atmosphere: The community is safe, but it is a retirement community with a college campus put in the middle. Everything, except some fast food restaurants, closes at 10 pm on week days and maybe 11 pm on week ends. There are a million furniture stores and car sales, but very few actual things to do for college kids. However, it is close to the beach, so that is always a plus for a marine biology student.
