2 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Campus feels as if you are not even in the town of Bradford. It is separate. The closest uni mart is a mile away and good luck finding someone to drive you if you do not have your own car. There is nothing much to do in town other than go to wal-mart, the movies, ice skating, to a football, baseball, or basketball game, go swimming, to the library, or study. other than that... there are no museums or anything interesting but there is skiing and sculpture parks as well as many local things that you will not find in any city.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There are a lot of great attractions and activities that you can do if you like being outside and in the woods. If you don't then there aren't many options.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: The further away from Bradford you go, the better it gets. There are beautiful attractions such as reservoirs, the Kinzua Skywalk, many trails, etc. However, downtown Bradford isn't so great. THE POTHOLES ARE TERRIBLE. The most well known store around is Walmart. There's better shopping in Olean, NY. Aside from the forest, the only attraction Bradford has is the Zippo factory.
