3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: It is a college town in the deep woods of Mississippi. Although the nightlife is rather good (if you are a college student and like drinking and what-have-you) there is not much to do on week days. There is a small movie theatre but no where to shop or really hang out.

2 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: There isn't much to do, but the people are nice.

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: It all I wanted in a college.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: It is a small college town so the only thing to do are college things. We do have a lot of concerts on campus, SEC athletics, a wildlife refuge, cute boutiques to shop at, and many other attractions. It is also a safe town to live in.

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: There are a lot of dining options, everyone is very friendly, there are plenty of things to do, and shopping is reasonable but there are towns with larger malls very close by.
