3 College Freshman

Local Area: The local atmosphere is pretty laid back. There aren't really a lot of activities to partake in though.

2 College Senior

Local Area: Our campus outside is beautiful. There is lots of grass and open land, which i like. There's also a beautiful pond. Other than that, there's not much else.

3 College Senior

Local Area: We have the Southside bars on Western street and Bourbon on 115th. Everything can be reached by car, cab, and even walking. Nightlife feels a lot like dive bars. As for the people in the community, everyone is very close knit and supportive. The school work a lot with community service and many of the students live within 15 minutes of the school. Every year we have the Southside Irish parade within walking distance.

4 College Junior

Local Area: The town is very quiet but you see SXU and it is filled with flowers which brightens up the day!

3 College Freshman

Local Area: Nothing special, typical south side Irish.
