1 College Freshman

Local Area: Activities, shopping, food, attractions, sports= nonexistent and I wish I was exaggerating. It's 45 minutes to civilization. Townspeople are nice to students, though. SVU students have a good rep

3 College Freshman

Local Area: It is fairly similar to what I grew up with. The biggest problem is there isn't much to do unless you have a vehicle of some sort.

4 College Junior

Local Area: It's a small friendly town. You will feel safe if you live here.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: The locale town is small but Lexington is 10 minutes away and has plenty of stuff to do. There are also different attractions around that you can visit. We don't interact with the other two universities nearby mainly because they're military and most of them can't leave campus without permission.
