3 College Sophomore

Local Area: It's small and many people complain about having nothing to do. They fail to realize they have brains and that they can make up there own things to do.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: You have to go to Asheville to shop. Very small community, literally no community-student involvement. The scenery is breath-taking but that's the mountains for you! Not much to do on the weekends unless you have a car.

2 College Sophomore

Local Area: The only way to get anything fun to do is to drive 30 minutes to Asheville.

4 College Junior

Local Area: The campus is a little remote but the scenery of the mountains is really beautiful. Also Asheville is a fairly short drive away so there is fun stuff to do if you can get to Asheville.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: We don't have anything to do but look at the mountains. If you want to have fun you have to make it happen yourself.
