1 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Jackson is pretty terrible. Everything that is here is pretty much shut down at 10 PM and there's a ton of crime. We're somewhat near Memphis, but not close enough to make a difference. Also the roads and parking lots are planned terribly.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The community is great for college students. There are a lot of things to do around town from dining out to sports to fun and games. Residents are fairly nice and dont seem to mind students.

2 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Theres lots of places to shop and eat. But Jackson as a whole is incredibly boring. Really nothing to do here unless you go to Memphis or Nashville. Not really any attractions.

3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Chains everywhere but easily accesible.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There are plenty of restaurants and things to do. There is a mall and shoppng centers to go to. The safety of the city concerns me with many robberies and shootings happening and it's not the big city life I want to live in when I graduate.
