4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Brookings is a charming city but I take online courses so I don't have a strong opinion of the city itself.

2 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The town itself is charming enough, but there's absolutely nothing nearby. The only major retailer in town is Wal-Mart and the only town on the east side of the state is over 30,000 is an hour away. The town basically depends on the school and Daktronics to survive.

Local Atmosphere: The temperature goes below 20 so not fun during the spring semester. But during the fall there are parks inside brookings. The Mount Rushmore is in South Dakota so maybe pay a visit. The nearest Shopping Mall is 45 mins drive from here. The local people treat very good to students.
