3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: We don't have anything to do but look at the mountains. If you want to have fun you have to make it happen yourself.

2 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Everything in town except for Waffle house closes at 11. There are only 6 resturants in town, and they aren't very good. Food shopping is overpriced, and there aren't many activities to do outside campus.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: It is a very good place to go to school.

2 College Student

Local Atmosphere: You have to drive about an hour to go some where to find some enjoyment and if you want to find something near the campus, there's nothing to do.

3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Local atmosphere is ok, if you are over 21. Ashville NC is called Beer City. There are plenty of bars, but limited night life for people under 21. If you are creative you can find things to do, but you may get arrested doing them.
