2 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Nothing to do, very crime ful city

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There are many clubs and activities available at the university you just have to find what best fits your personality.

2 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: I love my school, but the surrounding area can be a little intimidating. The campus is safe, but after dark roaming off of the campus could possibly be a bad decision. Other than that, the attractions are mainly on campus and so are most of the activities. I haven't gone shopping anywhere nearby, and I'm not sure how dining is either.

Local Atmosphere: Gary, IN is in the hood.

1 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: This is the worst possible place for a school. Crime rates are very high. I had a man try to grab my purse at a gas station outside of the school at the beginning of the semester. There is a Rally's outside of the school, but I found a chunk of hair in my burger, so I will most likely never eat there again. There is nothing good about this school or the location that it is in.
