1 College Freshman

Local Area: Located right in the middle of Springfield;very dangorus area especially after 5pm.

2 College Freshman

Local Area: This school is located in a not-so-great area of Springfield. The college is buying up lots of surrounding buildings to make it more of a safer community. I would not venture out of school grounds at night at all

2 College Freshman

Local Area: Lots of car accidents. You can walk alone at night.

4 College Senior

Local Area: The campus is nicely set within the city of Springfield. It offers great establishments for students to attend.

1 College Sophomore

Local Area: The local atmosphere is not safe at all. The city is not safe to walk around in or take public transportation. There are places to shop in the city but the locals attitudes towards students is poor.
