1 College Senior

Local Area: If you want to fall asleep to gunshots every night, go to this college.

2 College Senior

Local Area: The immediate vicinity is a largely low-income area that is not generally safe for students to explore at night. Other areas of town are nice, but distance is a limiting factor.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: It's usually a good place students don't go off campus a lot but there are restaurants and other businesses and parks students frequent.

2 College Junior

Local Area: There isn't much to do off campus. The biggest attractions would probably be the local theater or mall (to use the term "mall" loosely). Shreveport isn't too far east on the highway, and students sometimes find things to do there or in Dallas (which is a couple hours west). Most locals in the area don't really know much about the school and they seem to view it almost as a sort of cult.
