3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The city isn't very big...without the school there wouldn't be much in this town/city.

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: I love cedar falls downtown. There is always things to do for students and Cedar falls is pretty much in the middleish of Iowa so it's easy to travel to other places if need be.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The local town of Cedar Falls is decent in size. There are many places to eat but not many attractions. There is a small mall just 3 miles away from campus if that. It is a very safe town. There is a hockey team called the Blackhawks who play out of Waterloo but other than that, there are no sporting events besides on campus.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: It is just average, nothing bad really happens, but you also don't hear a lot about good things happening either.
