3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Its a small town in south Georgia. There are no big cities nearby except Tallahassee. There are things to do but there is not a huge variety. Shopping is alright and the VSU sports are pretty good. There is a definite military presence with the Air Force base nearby.

Local Atmosphere: Wild Adventures Theme Park only a few miles away offering a great variety of entertainment including live concerts. Nice Mall for shopping with good variety of shops. Locals seem pretty polite...but after all this is South Georgia!

Local Atmosphere: There are plenty of things to do and places to see, you just have to have transportation. School buses only go so far.
