3 College Freshman

Local Area: i've been here too long

3 College Freshman

Local Area: There is the holyoke mall but you need a car to drive as well as Northampton. The area on campus is quiet and good. People are friendly and respectable. You feel a homey feeling once you are there. Every weekend there is activities going on both the weekends and during the week. Sports games are fun and enthuisatic.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: Springfield and chicopee always have something to do but not all areas of the cities are pretty and clean. It's up to you where you go but I'd pay attention to where you end up at night.

3 College Junior

Local Area: Elms College is located in Chicopee, Massachusetts, it is relatively quiet in the area. No attractions or shopping areas are within walking distance, all of which is mostly driving distance. Attractions that take place on campus is enjoyable, but crowded due to the limited space the college has to offer.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: There is the Holyoke mall nearby a lot of stores and chicopee is overall a safe town.
