Local Area: Rolla's a small town, what do you expect??? Plenty of good fishing spots, if that's what your into.

5 College Sophomore

Local Area: Local area is very rural, so not much to do off campus. Local shops are small but very friendly and welcoming to college students. Many places offer student discount and benefits. Campus is the heart of the town, so there are plenty of events that go on around campus communities.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: There's not much in Rolla, but there are a few awesome locations and the people make it more bearable.

2 College Freshman

Local Area: On campus and the surrounding areas are fairly nice but most of the town is depressing if you're used to living in a large town or city..
