Most things are about 15 minuets away, but everything is very affordable.

If you are able to get off campus to Lynchburg which is the biggest and closest thing that resembles a city it takes about 25 minutes. Otherwise you are on campus most of the time and it is painfully remote with not a lot of interaction with outside sources. Its up to the student to go out and be social.

Virginia is friendly and open, very rural, spread out, but the people are welcoming and generally helpful. It's a small town atmosphere, very spread out, but there's a real community sense.

There's not a huge amount nearby. The greatest thing to do without going to Lynchburg is to go to Sheetz, El Mariachi, or Koto. Lynchburg is home to Randolph College and Lynchburg College, but as it's also home to the infamous Liberty University it's a pretty conservative place. There's not much to do, but if you want to go shopping there's decent shopping to be had in Madison Heights and Lynchburg, with even better shopping (from what I've heard) in Charlottesville. There is at least one sports team in Lynchburg, (a minor league baseball team called the Lynchburg Hillcats) so if you like baseball they're there to watch. Every year there's a great event called Get!Downtown that I recommend going to, but other than that there's not a huge amount to do (although there are good restaurants around if you want to go out to eat, Sakura being one noteworthy one for good sushi and bubble tea). Generally my form of amusement off campus is going and acting like an idiot at the Madison Heights Wal-Mart, although I've been known to go on the shuttle to Ward's Road and go to Barnes & Noble for coffee and then go and browse books I probably won't buy.

It is in the middle of know where. But here we have our own place. everyone is really nice and friendly. There are a few galleries and museums on campus. There are real towns with attractions with in driving distance. From 5 minutes to a small town to 30 minutes and you can be in a much larger town with more.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
