Athens has a mixed community, but the environmental part of the area can be very enjoyable!

I am currently a student here in Athens, Ohio. I have also visited family here for my entire life. There are places within the town that have wealth and is in really good condition, i.e. the university. However, outside of Ohio University there is quite a bit of poverty and people unfortunately do not live in the best conditions of its people. Overall, Athens is a beautiful place to live, and I would suggest it.
This is a college community. If you work for the college, you will make decent money. There is a state mental health facility that is another place for a decent income, the problem is, neither place hires frequently and when they do, the jobs are specialized. There are several other businesses that pay will provide you with a nice income, but you won't have a lavish lifestyle.
