3 College Sophomore

Local Area: We don't exactly advertise what we're known for; The Pony Express. Are oldest and neatest buildings are left to fall apart rather than being renovated like they should, and you find them in crappy parts of town. More bushes and attractive flower beds could be set up around town, and unclean buildings fixed up. I'm not a night person but even I know there isn't hardly any sort of night life unless you want to create your own party. Saint Joe also welcomes students; it means more money!

4 College Freshman

Local Area: It's okay in Saint Joseph, but there is not much to do around town.

3 Recent Alumnus

Local Area: There are a few activities in St. Joseph, MO.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: I think Saint Joseph is a great little city with much to do!

4 College Junior

Local Area: One part of St. Joseph is not in good condition and does not have a good atmosphere. The other part of town has a much better atmosphere with great shopping and food selection and seems generally safer. If you like more spread out areas, St. Joseph is a great town with the norms of a city but not as closely packed together.
