    Athens Township Reviews

    There are huge cliques, people not accepting people for who they truly are or who they want to be. They hate change, most people hear bicker over things not going their way. It's heartbreaking because when I was growing up it was never this bad. This whole town is turning into one drug addict or alcoholic after the next. I want to graduate from college and move somewhere else to raise my family, no one takes responsibility here in this town and it's just turning into a bad area.
