4 College Sophomore

Local Area: I really like it but it can get cold up there.

2 College Freshman

Local Area: There is pretty much nothing to do in town. Trips out include walmart and a "mall". For the best dining out options, look at Applebees.

Local Area: Town is in the middle of no where. Its cold, ugly, and depressing but a lot of the students seem to like it for some reason.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: There's pretty much a Bona-bubble. Everyone grows in sync with each other

4 College Junior

Local Area: St. Bonaventure University is set beautifully on the bank of the Alleganey River. There is a great trail that goes along the river for students and locals to enjoy. The local area is committed to the school, as it is its biggest attraction. SBU is just miles from the Alleghany National Forest, Alleganey State Park, and the Kinzua Damn. Skiing is minutes away in Ellicottville, NY. There are many enjoyable restaurants in the area, as well as a quaint shopping mall. Most of the faculty live in the surrounding area, connecting it to the Bonaventure community.
