3 College Freshman

Local Area: Mostly, it's a medium Midwestern town, and it has it's up and downs. Culture, there isn't much to speak of. If you aren't from around here, don't go to this school, it's kind of pointless.

1 College Student

Local Area: This city used to be really nice and have a lot to do, but now it is full of criminals and you have to be careful walking by yourself. There are always shootings and deaths even very near the housing. The people here are rude and unintelligent. This is not a good place to be,

4 College Freshman

Local Area: The University Park Mall is great. Ireland Road has lots of attractions.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: I have lived here my whole life so I have already done most things around this small town. I do try to find new things to do around here, but there isn't much. The only attraction people from out of town come to is Notre Dame. Other than that, if my cousins or friends that don't live around here come into town, I don't know where I would take them to have fun around here.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: South Bend has a near by mall
