Local Atmosphere: We are in a huge city so there are tons of stores surrounding us. There are buses that will take you anywhere you want to go.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Providence college is a whole 2 minutes away, their the place to go for sports games and parties. The only thing is you kind of have to make friends with them in other ways then just living at the college down the street. I only have connections because my boyfriend whom iv been with since high school went there. Providence college is not a dry campus and has a lot more diverse of a campus, most students live on campus there and some of them can be a little stuck up since it's an expensive catholic school. Other than that providence has one mall that closes at 9, it takes all of 45 minutes to get to the beaches in Narragansett, and there are a lot of restaurants that are open late. We have tons of coffee shops and pizza places!

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: It is great that the school is right by Providence Place Mall, Thayer St, the art museum, Federal Hill, the water fire, and many other attractions.
