Ashtabula County Reviews

It's a very small, but unique town. The county is very diverse in settings. In one part, it's nothing but farmland, other parts consist of a little harbor towns, and other parts hold a local viallage. It sits on one of the Great Lakes, Lake Erie to be exact. This makes for beautiful summers and snowy winters. The season of autumn is one of the most popular and beautiful as the trees turn to a bright orange, yellow and red. Despite its short lived life in these midwestern areas, it is the most colorful. The people are something else as it seems something straight out of a T.V. show in their lives. No one lives there without a crazy story to tell that belongs in a novel. I have called it my home since my birth and I still cannot fathom how few people can have such complex lives. To the naked eye, it looks just like an old industrial town. To its people, it is something more.

Schools are decent, job opportunities could be better though. However, community is very calm there are hardly any major incidents that occur. Most problems that happen, occur in most townships in the area. There are a lot of things that need improving of course, that would prevent this town from being referred to as Trashtabula or Ghost Town ever again.
This is a small town and most everything is central located. The school and professors are great! If there is anything a student needs help with, they take the time to help out. There's also small classes, which is nice for a more intimate learning experience.
