5 College Freshman

Nightlife: You have a couple of bars in walking distance. You have the bar on campus. Two cities about 25-30 minutes away.

3 College Senior

Nightlife: The town only has really two places people can go to drink socially. Both are within walking distance, which is ideal if you have had a few to drink and you need to get home. However, there are not a lot of options for places people can go, especially since most students are required to live on campus now. Parties are very rare on campus.

College Freshman

Nightlife: I don't drink or party, therefore I have no idea.

2 College Freshman

Nightlife: Unless you like to go clubbing and drinking then a good night will entail you hanging with a few friends in your dorm room or in Wilys. Other than that there isn't much to do unless you drive 30+ minutes away to have some fun.

2 College Sophomore

Nightlife: This is nonexistent. The president has made it mandatory for everyone to live on campus. There are on campus houses but each house has a Residential Assistant (RA) or a Residential Director (RD). There are no parties on campus and a very select few live off. There are only two bars in town which require you to be 21 to enter.
