4 College Senior

Local Area: There are a few museums, plenty of shopping and specialty items, great place to raise a family with the Kalamazoo Promise.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: There is a lot of restaurants and grocery stores around and a local movie theater, so not too bad. Also downtown Grand Rapids isn't that far and when it gets warm the beach is like 30 minutes away, so you can find things to do. Grand Valley isn't far either.

3 College Senior

Local Area: just outside of grandrapids with local attractions including art prize. never more than 15min from something to do.

4 College Senior

Local Area: Grand Rapids is a wonderful, safe place to reside in.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: Grand Rapids is a great place to live. It has a city feel with country charm.
