4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: In Bourbonnais there are a lot of places to eat which is nice. There are also 3 movie theaters and a sub-par mall. There is a place to go ice skating and a few cool parks. The nice thing is that our town is close to a lot of bigger cities and Chicago. Orland Park/Frankfort is fairly close and has a great mall and a lot of food places. Chicago is a quick train ride away which is a lot of fun.

2 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Bourbonnais is a very small town with not much to do. The most interesting things to probably do would be to go bowling or go miniature golfing. When it is nice out the Kankakee River State park is not too far, so that's a different option to choose from.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There isn't a lot of things to do at night and there is not really many attractions or events.

1 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: It is a school squished between one of the worst neighborhoods in the US, as declared by Oprah, and a ton, and i mean a ton, of small towns

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: A lot of forest preserves and farms. A mall in town.
