I have lived here basically my whole life, it's always been a very safe place to leave. Close together in a good way, there are many people to meet and talk to with tons of locations to live at not a very high price. Most things aren't that far out of the way of each other. The public schools are amazing, Oxford Hills High School has a technical school within it, giving even more opportunities than most other High Schools. Only thing that I wish was better was the nightlife, there isn't must to do around at night other than go bowling, watch a movie or go out to dinner.
Oxford is a great place to live and work! It has an outstanding college as well. The University of Ms is a wonderful institution to attend. Oxford has many restaurants and great local schools.
