    Overall Experience at Claremont: People are really conservative and judgmental.

    Overall Experience at Claremont: Being inland, there are not many things to do outside of my college's vicinity. It would be nice if there was more public transportation or overall better development like in the cities of Rowland Heights and Chino Hills.

    Overall Experience at Claremont: It's okay if you're white and rich. Otherwise one can kind of feel out of place. It's a beautiful city however, with lots of local shops. Great place to hang out on a Friday night.

    Overall Experience at Claremont: The area I live in now is great. I'm happy living here but I wouldn't want to be here my whole life nor would I come back if I get the chance. The only reason for this is that I love the big city life, so I plan on moving to an apartment in Los Angeles for of not the rest, then more than half of my life. If I ever get married then I plan on having a family and moving to Missouri, a state where no one is in a rush and I can easily unwind.

    Overall Experience at Claremont: Very quaint town. College presence is known, but not prevalent.
