5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Southern has an exquisite campus and feels like college and home all at the same time. The university has it's own gym which contains 3 basketball courts, tennis courts, a large workout room, racquet ball room, and many other things. Everyone there treats each other like a family, but its large so you can't know everyone.

5 College Student

Local Atmosphere: Southern has plenty attractions around it's campus. There are plenty of places to eat near by and Chatanooga is not too far away. There are especially many places around campus for outdoor activities such as parks and even cliff jumping.

College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: I do not leave the school very often. However, from what I have seen the area is nice.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The locals are very friendly and there is a rather large police force, so it is very safe. The scenery is great with a wonderful view of the mountains and there are a number of local trails and caves to explore if you are so inclined.
