Longmeadow is a very safe and very clean town but there are no community centers, opportunities, or many businesses that are geared towards college-aged young adults.

Very competitive environment. Very liberal and democratic. Most people are not overly friendly. Some bullying in the school system.
Longmeadow is a beautiful town with shops, parks, and a pretty green with historic homes. Almost every day you and see kids riding bikes, walking to school and there never less then 25 people walking dogs on any given day. It's like a postcard for the ultimate New England town.
