3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: As far as I know, its a fairly plain and quiet town. I don't leave campus often aside from grocery shopping or dining, but there are a great variety of stores and food places near campus. From what I've seen the local attitude towards students is very nice and accepting.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Attractions near campus are movie theaters, restaurants, bars, casino, forty minutes away from city of Chicago...Activities consist of parks, workout places, bike paths, and dog parks. Cultural events are held at school. There are numerous shopping stores. Local attitude toward students is upbeat.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: I don't spend enough time in the city to actually say whether it's a great place to hang out or not, but there seems to be plenty of shopping and dining choices. The nice thing about it is its close proximity to Chicago; you can literally just catch the train and ride it in to downtown Chicago. So if the nightlife isn't satisfying there, you have options.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Not for it or against it.

3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: I like my school and I would recommend it to someone.
