Living in college park is fun. It is very close to the University of Maryland and as a high school student, I can see college life without having to commute far. Everything is nearby, walking or biking distance and with a park trail close by. Lots of things to do around and places to go. Public transportation is at easy access.

The student housing is extremely expensive. Any affordable housing is worn down. However, there is an abundance of transportation options and local shops, which is by far the highlight of the area! I also love the walking trails that are available, but be sure to avoid them at night.
I love college park. It is where I go to school. The student life is very diverse and fun! But outside of campus, it can be dangerous. Constant break ins and assaults ten to happen in the area.
