Brunswick Reviews

If you like the small-town feel, the town of Brunswick is great! Everything shuts down at 1am, so not for those who want to party all night, but people will recognize you in town and in general the townies are pretty nice to the students.
I lived here since i was about ten years old. I always though I would move back to Massachusetts as soon as I could. Sometimes I still want to move back, but would have a hard time leaving the friends I have made here in Maine. I also couldn't leave my family, they have always had my back and supported me through everything and I think that has been a major help though my life. I can't say i would choose to live here again, but think everything happens for a reason. I met my husband here and couldn't imagine if we never met. Other times I wonder what other opportunities I would of had if I lived in a more populate area. I think thats the one thing I think about most, the "what ifs".
It depends how much you like the cold. The winters are pretty brutal for those not used to lots of snow and ice, but the spring, summer, and incredible fall seasons tend to make up for the frigid weather. The bright side of living in such a snowy place though is that there is almost always a white Christmas!
