Yes. In clinicals, during which we are in contact with real patients, these patients are usually excited to see us and be part of our learning experience.

Yes, I feel that the community plays a big role in what we do here.

I would definitely say the community is very friendly to students here at the college. Strangers at my summer job are always happy to see young adults take advantage of the great opportunities we have here at the college and it’s always a welcoming feeling and words of encouragement as well.

I do think the community is very friendly, the people here are great. Although, there are wild animals who try to attack me on my way to school that aren't so friendly.

Yes, definitely, in the sense that there are always things we get discounts on. Otherwise, Homer is a really good place to be a college student – lots of places to go and study. Overall, a very friendly place.
