2 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: UIndy is in the middle of the aging part of the city, full of decaying roads and old neighborhoods. The area had amazing potential, and its perfect for a service based university who focuses on improving lives. I would live near the university if the city would supply any money to help improve the area, which they will never do.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: I live in the city so no problems for me

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: I absolutely love being in Indianapolis. I have been a die hard Colts fan my whole life, so being able to experience downtown when there are home games is incredible. There is always something to do and it has a big city look but a small town feel. It's perfect.

5 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Indianapolis always has something to offer with entertainment and attractions. There is always crime in the city but I do not feel unsafe. There is a lot to offer for jobs and opportunity as this is the state's capital.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: I grew up in Indy but am from the North side so South side seems like a completely different town. Downtown is great!
