3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: it's okay for a college town, not where i'd want to raise my children.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Cortland is a very small town nestled between Syracuse and Ithaca, so a 30 minute drive either direction and you have more options for shopping, restaurants, parks, museums, etc.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: there is not much to do in the town, you have to go to nearby towns if you want to do something.

2 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: not much to do here, but I am used to a big city with a lot going on

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: It is very cheap to live in Cortland but its also nothing much. There isn't much to do. After one semester, you have done everything there is to do in Cortland. You could also drive to Destiny USA Mall in Syracuse but other than that there isn't much out here.
