College Station Reviews
Review College Station
I moved to College Station, TX, two years ago. It is a "college town" and boasts as the "Home of Texas A&M." It is only 1-3 hours from four major Texas cities: Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, and Austin. By population College Station is small, but when counted with its sister-city, Bryan, and the massive population of students, we qualify for many major retail and restaurant chains not typically offered to smaller towns. CSISD is one the best school districts in the United States and my children are receiving top notch education from the public schools here. It is a very healthy city is many ways. Fitness is an obvious priority to the majority of the residents, as evidenced by the city's many tracks and trails which are always heavily populated. The city is growing rapidly with new homes and businesses being built constantly.With the surge in residents, traffic is a nightmare! I intend to pursue avenues to petition the city to increase traffic control measures.
I love it in College Station. I moved here with my family in November 2016 from Houston. Everyone is so friendly, the area is gorgeous, and the cost of living of is very reasonable. There is a great ethnic diversity due to Texas A and M and Blinn College being in the vicinity. The public schools are great! Focus is more on achieving an actual education than on learning to take a test (don't get me started on state testing). I have never been to an area that I didn't feel safe in. The local parks are great and food options don't disappoint.
College Station is a big city in the middle of no where. With the thousands of college students, this town can sometimes feel overcrowded, but if you have a deep love for Texas A&M, you'll love this town. Despite the city being "run by college students", the university and community have many functions available for families that reside here. There is almost always something going on for every kind of person, like sporting events, concerts, craft fairs, and more!
