4 College Freshman

Local Area: Fort Collins is an amazing city. There is Old Town, which serves as an attraction in itself. It's a main street with tons of restaurants, bars, and cute little shops. Everyone is friendly and walks down the street with a smile. The local attitude towards students is a bit mixed, but mostly they are accepted as long as they act responsibly. There are parks all around the city for recreational sports and the Horsetooth Reservoir is a great place to hike, swim, or just enjoy a day outside with friends.
