4 College Freshman

Local Area: Diverse neighborhood with many volunteer opportunities, chances to interact with the community in positive ways, parks within walking distance, free festivals and street fairs, many restaurants serving ethically diverse foods and local support of farms, etc. Safety is not the best at times.

3 College Student

Local Area: Its small in within a medical complex

2 College Sophomore

Local Area: People at ACPHS rarely go off campus, for the reasons that there is absolutely nothing to do, and the students never break away from their books and studying long enough to leave the library or their dorm. Although the campus is in the middle of Albany, it's not an exciting city at all.

4 College Student

Local Area: There is a lot to do in the Albany area. There are a lot of parks, Saratoga race tracks, and great shopping.
