The only good thing about this town is the college. There is nothing else to do and the rest of the town is inhabited by mostly poverty and elderly people. The crime is not bad.

There are not too many entertainment places or restaurants to choose from. One good thing is that the town is small enough to be able to get anywhere in short amount of time.
