I love going to school in Bexley, it's a great community. We may be a small school/suburb area but I think that's a big factor in what makes this community so unique. Class sizes are smaller; which allows everyone to get to know each other, between students or teachers or even the interactions between students and teachers. This allows great relationships to be built between students of different ages and provides students with lots of helping resources because the teachers want to see the students succeed. We all also live relatively close to each other; our town is about a 2 by 3 mile community, making anything from hangouts to community events easily accessible and fun. Since Bexley is small, we can have more educational funding. Allowing there to be a wider choice of classes, new technology, and more staff to further our education. Bexley is a great community that is very supportive and wants you to grow.

Bexley has been a wonderful place to be in during my time in college. Anything you could ever want or need is within walking distance of where I've lived for the past four years. There have been many developments throughout my time here, and additions such as an independent bookstore and new restaurants have been valuable additions to the community. Some aspects that are a bit worrisome are that several businesses on Main St. have closed since I've lived here, and I am unsure of why that is the case. All of the restaurants that I have seen close were incredibly popular businesses, such as Cosi, Zoe, and C'est Si Bonne. It is also interesting to see the great disparity between such a wealthy community and then having Whitehall and downtown Columbus on either side of the community. And it seems as though Bexley doesn't do much to try and serve those communities, Bexley is mostly a bubble and in its own world.
I have lived in Bexley for 4 years now and love everything about this suburb. The community is very welcoming and comfortable. There is always a new place to eat whether you are looking for something casual like pizza or even a fancier night out at the local steakhouse. The grocery shopping is convenient with a new Giant Eagle as well as a Kroger, CVS, and more just down the road. There are always new places coming about aiding in the prominent college crowd of the private institution, Capital University. Housing includes anything from apartments to beautiful old mansions. This environment is somewhere I would recommend to anyone.
