3 College Senior

Local Area: Phoenix fine except its pretty miserable in the summer. There are a lot of good local restaurants in central Phoenix but there isn't that much to do for such a big city.

4 Recent Alumnus

Local Area: I lived here before starting school here. There's always something to do in the Phoenix Metro area.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: Glendale is a quieter suburb just north of Phoenix. There are plenty of bars immediately in the area, and tons of attractions in Phoenix and in nearby Scottsdale. You can go to the Phoenix zoo, botanical gardens, or the Salt River just to name a few. During the summer if you feel like getting away from the heat you can head up to Sedona or Flagstaff to go camping.

4 College Junior

Local Area: There's so much to do in the Phoenix area including hiking, shopping, dining, museums, sports, etc. Up north a few hours is Sedona for hiking and Flagstaff for snowboarding in the winter.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: There is a lot to do in Phoenix and the Glendale area, but you have to prepared to drive anywhere you want to go. Very few things are located within walking distance.
