3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: There isn't a lot to do in Chambersburg because it's a small town, but there is a lot of cultural diversity in town. The shopping is excellent and the local residents are very welcoming.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Chambersburg is a very nice place, so long as you're okay with a quieter city. It's the smallest city in the state and for the most part lives up to what you would expect to go along with that. Locals are very nice, but there isn't a ton to do. There's a cute coffee shop downtown, C&C Coffee, and a really neat bookstore that I like to hang out in, Northwood Books if I remember correctly. Other than that there's not a ton to do.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: There are a lot of shopping centers, the town is sometimes unsafe to wander.

4 College Student

Local Atmosphere: Like Home – The area is like what I've grown up in. Country setting, beautiful scenery and local mall and shopping easily available.
