A LOT OF CRIME REPORTS -- ALMOST ONE A WEEK. SCHOOL WAS CRAPPY, WITH A LOT OF CHILDREN EXPOSED TO MARIJUANA SCENTS DUE TO COLLEGE HOUSING. STREETS WERE DIRTY, HOUSES WERE EXPENSIVE, DRIVERS ARE UNFRIENDLY.

MAKE SURE TO LOCK THE DOORS AND WINDOWS IF YOU ARE GOING TO BE AWAY FOR MORE THAN A DAY OTHERWISE YOUR HOUSE WILL BE BROKEN INTO.
