Local Area: Riverside is a pretty cool place. Downtown riverside has an art walk every month, cool museums, eaterys, and cafe's to go to. The Mission-Inn is beautiful around Christmas time, and Mt. Rubiduox is a fun place for people who like hiking. You just have to know where to look. There's also a mall that is a couple of exits away from the school.

Local Area: Some parts of this city are very safe while others are not the best. I would not live here after graduating because I have several plans on where I want to go after graduating and Riverside is not in my plan.
