3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: The parking is a joke, for one. The fact that we rarely interact with FSCJ or JU is kind of strange.

Local Atmosphere: It's a good area to be in and there is a lot going on in Jacksonville. If you plan on going outside the UNF area though you have to have a car.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Jacksonville Is a big city with many attractions, they're just not especially unique. It's not a dead town: events take place on a regular basis and we have our share of parks, museums, sports stadiums, theaters, a zoo, etc. So maybe it's not fair to say there's not much going on, but nothing really stands out. Beautiful skyline though.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: The beach is nearby which is really nice and there are lots of restaurants but there isn't too many things considering how big of a city Jacksonville is.
