3 College Sophomore

Local Area: It is a small area that is very crowded by college life. The homes are small surrounding it but the people are nice.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: Joliet is one of the top cities in Illinois, but where the campus is located there's not much to do without traveling, which may be harder for campus resident's. Campus provides 1 shuttle a week to Walmart, and transportation to and from the train station.

4 College Junior

Local Area: The local atmosphere in the town/city of the school is great. There are plenty of places to go and experience. Unfortunately, some of these attractions are slightly off campus but there is a bus around every corner so no car is needed!

4 College Freshman

Local Area: I have lived in this town all my life. It has a great sense of history.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: Not much to do when off campus. The local area around campus is not a good area. Campus dining is not good, and parking is horrible.
