5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The local stores and restaurant are amazing. I wish we did not have to deal with Food City.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Downtown Bristol that is 3 minutes from campus is awesome and has tons of great local restaurants to go to!

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Theres not a whole lot to do. There are a couple bars in bristol but nothing too crazy. It is a beautiful area without a lot of crime.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: It's….okay. I mean if you're into the small town, everybody knows everybody thing, King could be the place for you. It's beautiful here, lots of mountains and hiking spots; if you love the outdoors, you'll love it here. Bristol has a couple of historic spots, all which can be seen within the matter of a few hours. If you're looking for a college atmosphere, you'll have to drive about 30-40 minutes up the road to Johnson City, where ETSU is. That's where everyone hangs out.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: There was not an option to describe Wilkes-Barre. It is an okay city size and the main square is a couple minute walking distance from campus. There are plenty restaurants and stores. The school also provides transportation to the local Super Walmart and the mall.
