I have lived in Atchison for more than 5 years and it is a a great place to retire and raise children. I wish there was more diversity in this town and more respect within our youth. I would love to see more opportunity and resources in Atchison for our youth, elderly and middle class. I do love this town, but like every city, we can always improve.
Review Atchison
The scholarship website was very nice. Very easy to use, I like how it guides you and pretty much answers each and every question for you as well as gives you good interesting suggestions. I recommend using this scholarship website to anyone looking to find financial help online. THANK you.
Atchison is a promising town. It could use some better local restaurants but the river front park is awesome. I think they could use some more sidewalks and parks for bike riding but overall it is a great little town. We live just outside city limits so we have had a great experience.
