5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: UNA is centered around a town with a lot of stuff to do. You can go to multiple parks, go hiking, swimming, and even shopping all in one day.

5 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Florence has tons of events going on. We have first Fridays, which takes place the first Friday of every month. Downtown is closed for music and events. We have plenty of museums, such as the W.C. Handy museum. There is also several parks and restaurants for people to enjoy.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: We are not too far from Nashville and other large cities. There are plenty of shopping places and outdoor activities to attend.

3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: The atmosphere is very charming, but not that appealing to younger generations. Shopping is too great and there are not many attractions. A fun event that occurs once a month is First Fridays. This event is the first Friday of each month with local vendors and artists. There are local bands and the Main Street in town is shut down for the night.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: It's a nice city with friendly families.
