Athen's has always had a great small town feel to it. Although the students try to get community members involved in oportunities such as the local food bank, community members could be much more involved.
I have lived with my family in Athens for 17 years. We have many friends and know all our neighbors. Our schools are excellent and our community is growing. I can’t think of a better place to live!
Small town with great businesses and friendly people. Also bigger cities are not very far away. Springfield, IL is 20 minutes away.
The crime rate in my small town is very low. Officers are always available.
Athens is more than just a corn field. It is like living in the country with a city atmosphere.
Cops in Athens are quick to respond and always on the lookout in Athens
Driving to Springfield every day really sucks
it's a very small town if you like small town life then it's great. not much to do in town. but very cheap to live here though.
