4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: I love Cape Girardeau. This place is phenomenal.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Cape Girardeau has more things to do than people let on. There is a great main street right next to the river with a ton of shops and little cafes to eat at. Also, we have a mall, movie theater, and bowling alley. The students here love to go out to the bars, which are plentiful around here.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Very nice city. Small town feel but good shopping, dining, and hotels. Not much to do for a college student. Great churches, parks, and community as a whole. South Cape isn't very safe. Just got a Casino so that is a pretty big deal.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: If you're looking for a place where you can focus on studies and graduating quickly, then it has a good atmosphere for that. but if you are looking for a college where you can just chill, and not really in a hurry to graduate or if you're looking for the best experience in college, then this place you'll come to find it boring. (AKA night life)

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Overall Cape is a good and safe town. I was born and raised here. It definitely gets boring around here because as a local I feel like nothing is ever offered. Over the past few years though Cape has tried to grow as a whole by rebuilding downtown with more shops. It also seems like theyre trying to add in new activities around the area. Cant hate us for trying!
