Morgantown (WVU) is about an hour away.

Local Atmosphere: One can walk to downtown Buckhannon with ease, enjoying all that the town has to offer. If you wanted to go to Wal-mart (gross), the Wal-mart is still somewhat nice. The nearest mall is about an hour away.

Local Atmosphere: The local atmosphere of Wesleyan college is beautiful. There's always students and people walking outside, taking pictures, and sometimes just sitting on the grass. There's shops on main streets, and nice food places. It is a rural place and if you like the country feeling, then its the right place for you.
