3 College Junior

Local Area: There isn't a whole going on off campus for students. They don't make it easy to get around for the people who don't have car. Wish there was more to do around the surrounding area.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: Located right off of I-40, Hickory is a relic. Immediately off of I-40, heading towards campus you'll be seeing just about everything there is in your regular driving rotation. There's some shopping and a game center in the mall, but if you're not looking to spend money you're out of luck. We have some rec fields to go play a pick up game of whatever, but that involves investing in a ball (and books are expensive). I was very surprised to find out, my first time being at this school, that so many local people just loved this place. In three days I must have heard at least four "oh my son/daughter went there! Back when it was Lenoir-Rhyne College!"

5 College Sophomore

Local Area: It's a great small city! There's lots of nature to enjoy but also every kind of store you would need. The people are also very nice.

4 College Senior

Local Area: People were very nice and friendly. You learn sections of town to stay away from. The campus is very clean and safe. Near the lake.
