4 College Sophomore

Local Area: You can find nearly anything in the south loop but many things close at 8-9pm so it's difficult to find fun things to do at night. If you ever want to do something at night, you can usually take the red line up to Grand or farther up to Addison.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: The area is super nice. There is plenty of cool places to walk to. Only thing is mostly everything to do in the city costs $$$$. Sports are not big here at all, I think we have like a baseball team?? Its not big here. Everyone is okay, personally this school is nothing to get the 'college experience' from!

5 College Freshman

Local Area: Living in Downtown Chicago has so many perks especially with a Ventra pass that I can use anywhere.
