2 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Boring town but a lot to do on campus.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: My best description of Morehead would be that is an isolated, sleepy little town. The best things to do off campus are either go to Lockegee, Cave Run, or go out to eat and maybe hit the local (tiny) movie theater. I've grown tired of the area, but some people don't. It's also a major deal if you have a car. If you don't have a car to get away from campus, you'll lose your mind. Anything that feels like real civilization is about an hour away. There's no nice shopping malls, just a couple of strip malls which are okay. Cultural events seem to be average..local parades, food, arts & crafts by local merchants..but these events happen only a few times a year. Safety seems to be very good on campus, there are always cop cars patrolling, especially at night. There are also several call towers placed across campus in case you're in an emergency.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: If you are an outdoorsy person you would want to go to cave run lake it is a lot of fun! You should also check of lockegee, there is a beautiful scenery from the mountains. The shopping consist of berks outlet, sally's beauty supplies and Walmart. The nearest mall is an hour away in lexington. If you are 21 and older the place to be on a Thursday night is Roadies.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Beautiful town! Everyone is very friendly and there are activities for all ages.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Its just out in the middle of nowhere and not much to do for fun.
