3 College Junior

Local Area: It's a small college town. However, its not too far from shopping malls and other stores. It's a pretty city but can get boring after a while

3 College Freshman

Local Area: The effort of getting used to the area is all that is needed. Shopping areas, restaurants, and off-campus attractions are difficult to get to without transportation. It is still a very isolated yet protected area. Every weekend the University offers great events used for bringing the community and students together.

4 College Senior

Local Area: It is a small community. Very charming and plenty of like believers

5 College Freshman

Local Area: Southern has an exquisite campus and feels like college and home all at the same time. The university has it's own gym which contains 3 basketball courts, tennis courts, a large workout room, racquet ball room, and many other things. Everyone there treats each other like a family, but its large so you can't know everyone.

5 College Student

Local Area: Southern has plenty attractions around it's campus. There are plenty of places to eat near by and Chatanooga is not too far away. There are especially many places around campus for outdoor activities such as parks and even cliff jumping.
