Friendly folks, fun places to gather, nice prices.

I like how quickly I was able to find friends and make connections.

I wish there were easier ways to get jobs here, but as it's a college town, things are pretty saturated.

So far, there are a lot of things I love and hate. The roads are very busy here and that makes getting around a struggle. The area is beautiful though.
Lane County has been fantastic. People are friendly and personable. The views are beautiful and there is tons of outdoor adventures here.
