Commerce is a small town turned college town. If you like quiet, relatively uneventful day-to-day goings on, Commerce is wonderful. My issues with living in Commerce were that:
1. Housing is ridiculously overpriced, though this is to be expected of a college town.
2. The variation in eateries is low overall.
3. There is very little parking for the campus.

Commerce is a very friendly place to live in. It is is a rather small town and is filled up with a lot of college students but it is nice and relaxing. There isn't much to do here besides a few things. If your a very adventurous person and like exploring then this town isn't for you. If your trying to lay down and just relax more then this may do the job for you.
Commerce is connected to a university and is a small college town. Many people that live in Commerce commute to local cities for work, with the exception of university employees. The public school system has a caring administration and great teachers, and is technologically advanced. As the university has grown, more businesses have come to the town than in prior years. The city is generally very safe, and peaceful.
