5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Asheville is an awesome city! Just the right size, with tons of shopping and dining options! The people are so nice, too.

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Asheville, North Carolina is an eclectic mix where the Tea Party and the Hippies meet and co-exist on shared ground! Must be experienced.

5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Asheville is a tourist place and I'm very lucky to live here...the mountain views and overall culture are amazing!

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Local atmosphere is awesome. Wonderful opportunities to enjoy nature and the mountains, then at the same time an exciting city to explore culture events, artists, and shopping!

5 College Student

Local Atmosphere: Asheville has a growing art community that is really cool. In my opinion, though, the food/beverage scene is where it's at. There is a wide variety of interesting cuisine for all times of people and preferences.
