3 College Sophomore

Local Area: The closest place a college student can go is to Wichita. That is a, at least, 30 minute drive. In town, there is a movie theater, but it always seems packed because that is one of the main attractions to do. Another big BC thing to do is go to half price apps at Applebees. If a college student is bored, they might find themselves wandering around Walmart for several hours spending money on things they probably don't need.

2 College Junior

Local Area: While there are places to go in Newton, the attraction wears off fairly fast. There are a few locations where students are regular patrons, and we do have good shopping access. But the cultural, sports/recreation, and positive attitudes towards students aspects are severely lacking.
