2 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: The nicknames S***port…. explains enough

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: I'm from the Philadelphia area so I feel very isolated and bored in Williamsport. There isn't much variety in what is available off campus for entertainment.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Little League World Series every year. Tons of restaurants and activities downtown. Lots of fun things to do in Williamsport.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Williamsport isn't huge, but it's big enough to not get bored. There's a few theaters nearby, a shopping mall and area, and a strip of restaurants and shops. The Cultural Center is a few blocks away. An ice rink isn't far, and students can attend semiprofessional hockey games or skate themselves. However, most students stay on campus and attend sporting events or other campus activities.

2 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Theres one really great pizza shop down town everything closes kind of early. There really isnt anything to do for younger students. If you are over 21 the cell block is a popular place to hang out. The security is always around however they seem to look the other way at under aged students unless making a scene. The campus and surrounding area is safe however do not adventure out much further alone especially at night.
