4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The local atmosphere is great! It's got some good scenery and good friends all around. The city is pretty fun once you go out and about to explore, you just have to give it a chance.

College Senior

Local Atmosphere: I am an online student.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: The Valley isn't as bad as people play it out to be. It's growing and its exciting to be a part of that growth.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: It lacks more cultural events concerning museums, art and theatre in the town.

3 Recent Alumnus

Local Atmosphere: There's not many attractions in the Rio Grande Valley. Cultural events do happen a lot since we're a minority majority populated. There's only one shopping mall located locally but many small downtown shops. The attitude towards students seems to be alright.
