Angola is a great midwestern town to visit and/or live in. The community is tight-knit and kind. For example, the town offers Trine University freshmen special discounts at restaurants and even large stores like Walmart in order to lower costs for students. There is quite a bit to do, considering there are over 100 lakes, many shops, and parks. One of the best parts about the town is the diversity in churches to best fit the religious needs of the community.

Angola is a great small town to raise your children in. The public school system is well-rounded enough, but the best part is the location. While there are plenty of opportunities to learn life-long skills, there is not an abundance of crime or violence that would hinder a child's ability to grow. Children ages 12-18 can be part of 4-H Youth Leadership, where they raise livestock and get to show them every summer. There is also the aspect of quiet country living that is only available outside of a large city.
Well, I guess it honestly depends on your values and needs, as well as how much money you have. As my governement teacher and a city counsel member pointed out a few weeks ago, there is not much of a middle class in this town. Most people are either very very wealthy or very very poor. Also, the town is overwhelmingly WASP-y and conservative/republican and there is not much diversity. Although if you try hard enough, as with any place, you can find your people. There is hardly any crime (mostly just substance abuse issues) here and it is a pretty safe place to live. This county also contains 101 lakes, so that is fun. Overall, it is an okay place to live, but I do not plan on living here forever.
