2 College Senior

Local Area: I could never picture myself living at Elizabethtown after graduation. Don't get me wrong, it's a cute town in its own charming way, but there is nothing to do there.

Local Area: You need a car to be able to do anything basically. But the college has a lot of on campus activities.

3 College Junior

Local Area: It's a very small town but it has its charm. If you don't have a car on campus, we are fortunate enough to have an Amtrak station right in town.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: It's a safe and cute town.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: It's a really small town, but there are things to do if you look hard enough. There are small places and a lot of thrift stores and other random shops. There's a Kmart, Giant, and other stores of the like. The most to do is just walk around and hang out with your friends but it can still be fun. There isn't really much ever going on though.
