Overall a nice town that has gone through tough times. Seminary Street is rebuilding with locally owned stores and restaurants. Relatively safe. Higher than average sexual assault rate at the college, but assaults are student-to-student.

The township is an excellent place to live with almost anything within a fifteen minute drive at most. The people are friendly, and there are goods and services at good prices. It is an affordable place to live as long as one can find a steady job.
