3 College Freshman

Local Area: It's remote, but it's a great campus to live on.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: Mt. Pleasant is a very small town when school is not in session. It is out towards the middle of no where, so besides the few main streets filled with restaurants, there is not much here. The parks are beautiful and are a very good attraction. There is not much shopping available to students throughout the local area. However, the locals are friendly towards students. There are also many great churches and religious groups throughout Mt. Pleasant for students to join.

Local Area: Everything is pretty close if you are driving or even walking. They have almost every intramural sport to get involved in. Each week they have things sent to your email that is going on. Get involved and make your own fun.

Local Area: Honestly, there is really not that much to do while you're waiting for classes or looking for something to do. I wish there was more to see or go and do. While I am waiting for classes I never do anything because there is not anything to offer in this town for students out of campus.
