3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: There's not much to do out there unless you attend campus events.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Very small community but everyone in the town supports the college. The firefighters even eat lunch in the cafe.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: I like the small town atmosphere at Montevallo. I have lived in Seattle and now live in a town of probably less than 7 thousand. I much prefer the small town life. Montevallo has a laid back atmosphere. The town is very accommodating to its student citizens and had the American Village park as a tourist attraction. While I have not yet visited it, I understand it to be educational as well as fun.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Montevallo is a small town so there isn't much, but it is very beautiful. It can be very fun if want makes it fun for themselves.

1 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There is a reason why Montevallo becomes a ghost campus on the weekends because the is nothing to do in this crappy town. Montevallo is a liberal college in a conservative town so mingling with the townies is rare.
