4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The local atmosphere doesn't include many attractions or places to see, but it is a beautiful town that can be extremely enjoyable if you know how to make your own fun. There is a large park where you can barbeque after a day of golfing just next door. There are few stores to shop at and there are many festivities/events throughout the summer and fall.

Local Atmosphere: Oskaloosa is a nice town. I would live there if I wasn't married and settled in my town. It has plenty of dining options, some entertainment, community get-togethers. There is a small mall. The town seems to appreciate the business the college generates.
