College Hill is a progressive neighborhood having diversity in ownership's of businesses and homes that thrives because of community input. Despite being a low crime area with new development, having great private schools and remaining very residential, a newly graduated college student can find affordable housing in this neighborhood that is centrally located. You can go North, South, East or West to easily access multiple grocers, malls, gyms, movie theaters, an artisan bakery or multiple interstates. I love College Hill. My only improvement would be to bring back College Hill day when theirs a parade of floats, classic cars and a community-meet-and greet.

It is a wonderful community. I love that no two houses are really the same. It is not a cookie cutter neighborhood. The changes to the community are very positive adding new restaurants, Marlowe Court, Brink brewery and it’s just going to keep getting better!
When me and my mother first moved to College Hill back in 2002, it was a nice and quiet area we lived in. As the years went by we experience some rough patches dealing with drug dealers in our areas and a lot of small business owners come and leave because of the trouble making teenagers. College Hill is moving in the right direction so far but there needs to be more changes like a supermarket store for people who do not have transportation, new apartment buildings, and also more police force.
