Nice little town with "just" enough to do.... but at least you can take a bus down to Amherst for free if you need more. [View Full Report]

I hope the Bus system is good because they're definitely off the beaten path. [View Full Report]

A very pretty, heavily wooded, not-quite-rural-not-quite-suburban area. [View Full Report]

Was very nice. Didn't seem seedy or bad. Within walking distance for off-campus food and some shopping. [View Full Report]

Nothing to Northampton or Amherst down the road, but some nice restaruants, a movie theater, and a bookshop. [View Full Report]

Not a lot going on in the surrounding area, but it's pretty and the Village Commons are charming and nice. [View Full Report]

Pretty. Bucolic. There isn't a lot to do immediately off-campus. [View Full Report]

Small town of South Hadley. They were having a town tag sale, so everyone was out, and it seemed like a very nice, friendly, quaint town. It was real America. [View Full Report]

Cute but very small town, area rather rural. Still, a very nice cafe and shops right across the street. [View Full Report]
