3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: There is not much to do on or off campus. You have to make your own fun.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: not much to do. and if you don't have a car, you are stuck on campus for the weekend with nothing to do.

2 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: They kind of hate us. But many students are pretentious, little dirt bags. Don't blame them for hating us

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: It's a smaller town so there isn't a ton to do. But the train station is close and weekend Chicago trips are great. We have two nearby parks that are always fun to visit as well.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: It's a pretty small town with not much to do, but Chicago is not to far away some students travel there on weekends.
