3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: There are shopping around the campus, movie theater but safety is an issue after dark.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: I have went to Wal Mart a few times and other than that I'm not familiar with a lot of places. From the interstate there are a lot of shopping places. It is close to Charleston, WV and it has a lot of activities in cultural, sports, and just about anything you choose.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: The majority of the population here is made up of students, so during school time, there are plenty of people and lots to do. But if you stay here during summer break, it gets fairly boring and lonely.

2 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: sucks, everything is out dated. roads are pot hole ridden, and unless you are clubbing then all there is, is bowling and movies

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: There are some good places you can go, but you never go by yourself anywhere off campus. Some people tend to be mean and rude, and make gestures and comments if you're a girl. It's not the best city to live in, but the campus is nice, clean, and safe compared to the city surrounding it. Though they are making improvements in the city, but it's still pretty sketchy out there.
