Their isn't traffic, because of the students we have amenities that larger cities have such as big sporting events, great concerts, and ethnic food. The community is great and there is great pride in taking care of the locals. Volunteering is HUGE. I wish there were more jobs, as this is a retirement and college community there is not much here
The people who stay here stay together. This is a transient community due to the Penn State University. Which is nice because you get accepted into the community very quickly because of this.
The crime rate is growing because the community overall is growing but crime is generally rare in this area and i think it's one of the safest towns to be in right now.
