2 College Sophomore

Local Area: Geneva is a really small town. The locals are generally very kind and gracious (despite some of the students being quite elitist/ condescending towards "townies") but there isn't much to do. Downtown Geneva is a couple of blocks with a few decent restaurants and small stores. There's a small movie theater that only plays 5 wide releases at a time. Not a lot going on.

Local Area: Small town with not much public transportation. What's good is that all the restaurants are local, not many/any chains, and they love when students come. Students provide much of the nightlife.

2 College Freshman

Local Area: The town dislikes the college students in all aspects. It's regarded as poverty-stricken. Professors don't even live in the town. There are strained relationships between the students and the residents. There aren't many attractions besides wine, which is only accessible for students 21+. It takes at least 45 minutes to get anywhere remotely attractive and is five hours away from major cities (New York/Boston). Airport transportation is costly and not available through the Colleges unless over a major break.

2 College Sophomore

Local Area: It's an hour and a half to the nearest airport, large concert venue or train station.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: pretty much in the middle of nowhere, but most of the stuff happens on campus. its still nice to go into town though
