4 College Sophomore

Local Area: The town is beautiful and lovely. It is semi easy to navigate because it has a lot of one ways. The cultural events are great. In the winter time there is a ice sculpture festival in the middle of town. Safety is great too because there are security guards on campus that check everything all the time. Shopping is great because all the shops are in one area. the attitude of locals toward students are that the are friendly and seem to be pleased that they met college students.

3 College Junior

Local Area: There isn't a lot to do in Chambersburg because it's a small town, but there is a lot of cultural diversity in town. The shopping is excellent and the local residents are very welcoming.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: Chambersburg is a very nice place, so long as you're okay with a quieter city. It's the smallest city in the state and for the most part lives up to what you would expect to go along with that. Locals are very nice, but there isn't a ton to do. There's a cute coffee shop downtown, C&C Coffee, and a really neat bookstore that I like to hang out in, Northwood Books if I remember correctly. Other than that there's not a ton to do.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: There are a lot of shopping centers, the town is sometimes unsafe to wander.

4 College Student

Local Area: Like Home – The area is like what I've grown up in. Country setting, beautiful scenery and local mall and shopping easily available.
