3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Not very cultural around campus; wish that there was more to do.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Fayetteville isn't exactly the best place to live, there are some very seedy parts that are pretty close to the school that you should never go near. But for a military town there's quite a bit to do, the problem is getting out to do it and knowing where to go. The RA's try their hardest to find cool stuff to do with students and same thing for the Campus Life people. Downtown Fayetteville offers many different cultural things to do, and Fayetteville isn't far from outlet shopping or the beach.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Fayetteville is a nice town, but safety concerns are developing.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: If you stay in the good parts of town, there's a lot to do. Everywhere has there downfalls. Fayetteville is a big town so no one really knows you're a student so they just treat you normally. It's a military town so there are a lot of museums. Downtown is also a fun place to explore.

3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Fayetteville is a military town. It has good and bad. Methodist is in a nice area and the campus is secure. Raleigh is only about an hour away, so there are more choices for dining and entertainment in that area.
