3 College Freshman

Local Area: It's a small town where the college rules. A lot of shops and places to eat in downtown West Chester and close to Philly.

4 College Junior

Local Area: Safe. Quiet. But nothing around. It is normal small town but phily nearby

5 College Freshman

Local Area: I think overall it is a pretty beautiful area to be a part of.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: The town of West Chester has the best of a suburb and small city. Houses are nice, but sometimes the area seems cramped. The town really shines scenically in the fall. The primarily red, brick-heavy sidewalks and buildings look beautiful with the fall leaves.
