I’m not originally from schuylkill county, I don’t like it here. There’s many racist people, then there’s many nice people. Not a lot of jobs for college students

Schuylkill County has always been a homey little, middle of nowhere county. It has its quirks and opportunities.
Beautiful area visually, but barren. Very few to no places for young people to gather or hang out in most areas. Very few to no work opportunities, especially for full time jobs. Low crime rate in many areas, and most small towns do not require their own police force.
