3 College Junior

Local Area: Boca Raton is not often seen as a college town, rather there are many older people who live here instead. Boca is far from many peoples' view on a 'college town.' Luckily there is Delray Beach, West Palm and Miami not too far away; but one needs a car for that. Boca is a high-end town and the people in Boca are fairly high-end as well. That is not to say that we as college students do not find ways to go out and have a good time as we should.

4 College Junior

Local Area: Boca Raton is pretty small, but it fits the students of the school well. There are plenty of restaurants close by, like Cheesecake Factory and the Four Seasons, and for anyone living close to campus there are grocery stores nearby. There is a shopping plaza only a few minutes from campus, and Spanish River allows the students to have a chance to relax at the beach.
