There can be some improvements. However, the police are very concerned about the well-being of individuals in their town. The only concern is keeping down town cleaner

KSU makes the social life easier. I would love to live here again but I don't know where my major will take me. People are very nice and very helpful. They care about the well being of individuals and like to see everyone succeed.
