5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Raleigh is a very cultural oriented city.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Although there are no shopping centers near Shaw University students still can get to the mall but the city bus. There are some nice museums but other than that there isn't much for us to do unless we walk downtown.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: There is stuff to do but I notice a lot of students don't partake in the stuff that goes on downtown. If anything, it's the clubs that most of them want to go to. The clubs are small and are further away from downtown. Crabtree Valley Mall is the closest mall and it's about 16 minutes away. So, if you want to do something fun, make sure you know how to ride the bus.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: there is not much to do around the school if you dont have a car or dont know where the buses go
