4 College Sophomore

Local Area: Small talk w/downtown business people is so fun

4 College Freshman

Local Area: The town surrounding the school in the immediate area is very small. But, I like the small town feel. Its what I preferred in my college search: a small College in a small town, that wasn't my hometown.

But, I'm not out in the middle of nowhere. Either an hour north or and hour south, are big cities with tons of things to do. I've been to art museums, symphonies, plays, concerts, etc.

The shopping also requires a little bit of a drive, but the bargains are worth it. It has a great shopping scene.

1 College Freshman

Local Area: There isn't much to do. I'm transferring in the fall to somewhere that has more things to offer socially.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: There's really not much to do off of campus unless you want to drive a bit to Mansfield or even Cleveland or Columbus. It is a nice, safe small town, though, one that's a lot like my hometown so it's something I'm comfortable with.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: There's not a whole lot to do in a city the size of Ashland
