Local Atmosphere: The surrounding area is meh. It's better than it was 20 years ago and its getting better, but its an awkward transition zone between Atlanta and Alpharetta/Roswell with only car dealerships and Wal-Marts/general shopping and fast food. Marietta Square is nearby, but without a car, it's inaccessible and it's mostly closed at night. Note: a trolley does take students without cars to and from Marietta Square and Wal-Mart plaza every Thursday.

Local Atmosphere: A short drive into Kennesaw or Atlanta and you won't run out of things to do, or places to see. Also, in Marietta, there are plenty of parks and sports clubs.
