4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: The Brookings community is very friendly and open to college students. There are a variety of activities on and off campus for both students and community members. The college holds a variety of cultural festival events for students and members of the community to attend. College sports are big among both the students and community. The atmosphere between students and the community is usually always positive and supportive. Plays are a favorite for both students and the community.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The school does not offer many ways to access the city without a car. It is also dangerous sometimes going out at night.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There is not much to do in Brookings, SD. The movie theater is cheap though

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There is plenty to do away from school if you choose to want activities.

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.
