Local Atmosphere: The local area around campus is not the best. Its actually kind of scary. I've never met any mean locals but i haven't many of them in the first place. There is not much to do in this area and if you would like to go shopping at a mall or go to an attraction you have to go to columbia.

Local Atmosphere: There is all of the basic things that you could want in a town available. We have grocery stores, shops, a bowling alley and a movie theater. Outside of that though there really isn't all that much to do around town. The town itself isn't bad. There is larger cities that are close enough that we can go to as well, which helps.

Local Atmosphere: Good ol' Fulton offers up an interesting place to attend school. It's ridiculous and wonderful at the same time. There are always plenty of "only in Fulton" moments that make you laugh and you will miss once you've graduated. Columbia is 20 minutes away and is great--everything you'd need is there and gives you a chance to get away from small town life. Mizzou is in Columbia, and many people have plenty of friends at Mizzou. Westminster is about a half a second down the road from Woods and while our educations are separate, our social lives would have one believe William Woods & Westminster are the same school. The Greek chapters participate in each others' events at both schools, and everyone parties together.
