The atmosphere for this area is generally welcoming, but the locals tend to be very conservative. Otherwise, there are people of many different races and backgrounds living here because of its growth. I wouldn't want to live the rest of my life here because I would like a change in atmosphere, but it's not a bad place to live.

This place is a great place to live in. I went to Berea Elementary, Berea Middle, and Berea High School. The school and place is very diverse and friendly. Recently, people are coming from all over the nation to live here in Greenville.
Crimes occur every now and then in this area. What is most prevalent is car crashes on our interstate and roads. There are several crashes a day and many die from these crashes, including my own peers and those my age.
