    Not much to do here. It was very hard to live here as a student. There wasn't anything to do, all my friends live far away. If I wanted to walk somewhere it would be so far. The community is wonderful but I wish it was more inclusive and had more activities.

    Well, first of all I like Niche because It offers so many different scholarship, that allow me to keep studying, It's easy to apply, so It's a big opportunity that I can't refuse.
    There isn't a very huge variety of stores to choose from around here.
