5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Durham is becoming a hot spot for activity. With colleges like Duke, UNC Chapel Hill & NC State around there is always something to do. And don't forget the Durham Bulls!!!

Local Atmosphere: It's great. We have the Durham Bulls baseball team, Southpoint shopping area that has concerts on the mall, beautiful museums, arts, broadway plays and concerts at the Durham Performing Arts center, etc. Duke University, UNC, NC State University, Saint Augustine's University, and many other universities are close by. Greensboro and Charlotte events are not that far away.

Local Atmosphere: The city my school is in is slow. There isn't a lot of fun attractions around. You have to make your own fun.
