5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: The shopping mall is the best because it has lots of stores and the prices are affordable.

Local Atmosphere: Shaw is right by downtown Raleigh.. there's always street fairs and events happening there. That's also where all the off campus food places are.

Local Atmosphere: If students wanted to go off campus to go to the mall we could, we could catch the bus called the CAT or get a ride from a friend. The activities on campus is not great at all on the other hand we area not allowed to do a lot of things like have yard parties or do anything really. If their was something to be taking place we have our little organized ball parites or if an organization wants to throw a parties or social gathering event then we go and most of the time they make us pay.
