3 College Sophomore

Local Area: The mall is across the street but there are no 18+ clubs and it is difficult to get a job off campus and the on campus jobs are hard to come by. Every party you have to pay for and that can be difficult if you do not have a job. The parties get shut down to quickly by the police. If the university had a Division 1 football team then it would bring more people to the town. The town is not very inclined towards college students.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: The local atmosphere in Columbus is pretty average. You can always find something to do but the activities are limited depending on where you go.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: I personally like the little town paradigm and it is nice change of pace from giant cities like Atlanta.

3 College Junior

Local Area: Night life could be much better!

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: Local atmosphere was decent. Campus us located directly across from the mall which is very convenient. There is also a park and plenty of trails down the street from the school. Downtown life was historically pretty.
