Local Atmosphere: The overall city of Rock Hill is great. There is a park for enjoyment, along with a recreational field at our coliseum which can be used by the public as well as students.

Local Atmosphere: Rock Hill is closer to Charlotte and there is tons to do in Charlotte.

3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Locals are not going out of their way to interact with college students. And students who are locals tend to exclude those who come from other cities

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: On campus we have several cultural events, daily. We are required to attend 28 of them before graduating. The school is not in the best part of the city. Like I said before, we have had several robberies in the past two years within less than a mile from the school. We do not have a football team, however we do have soccer, baseball, softball, volleyball, and more. I usually go shopping, we have a mall right up the road from the school, and several smalls stores. There is always something to do on or around campus. I am rarely bored.
