The town is wonderful, and everyone has a positive attitude. Its a great place if you like small towns but there is not much activities and attractions in the area. An hour away is Iowa City, a neighboring college town home of University of Iowa, and a small city that has everything you want or need. But in Fairfield there are great restaurants, a great music and art scene. A hub for poetry and spoken word, with groups meeting and collaborating every day. With students from over 80 countries represented at MUM there is a cultural celebration or festival nearly every weekend, giving you a chance to experience that culture and the food, dance, music, and traditions of many other countries. There are many clubs on campus and in town that meet for everything from sports to knitting to hooping.
