5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The town is really college student based and is very friendly to us students.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Very down to earth, great farmers market and the local artists are more then willing to talk to students and their guests.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: I love living in a small town with a small city nearby. It isn't everybody's cup of tea, but come try it for a semester or a year and you can always transfer to a different school if it isn't a good fit.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: You need to go over to the next town for stores.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: It's a small town area but there is still a lot to do and there's always a lot going on
