3 College Senior

Local Area: There is nothing to do in this town. By the time classes are over, all of the shops in walking distance are closed.

2 College Junior

Local Area: There is nothing around Waynesurg.

1 College Freshman

Local Area: At least two thirds of the students leave on weekends. Any party gets busted because the cops have nothing better to do in this little town. If you have a car, WVU and Pittsburgh are nearby but other than that you are stuck in your dorm with a small group of people who stay.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: Right in town there's not much to do, but the view is awesome. within thirty minutes of the school, there's a ton of stuff to do, such as: hiking, shopping, parks, and local attractions.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: The school is located in between Morgantown, WV and Pittsburgh. The town has a Walmart and its variety of pizza shops, but that is pretty much it. If you don't live near or have a car than your weekends can be very boring. The school is the most popular attraction to the small town. The schools radio station, newspaper, and student managed TV station are some of the things that connect the town with the university.
