I would live here again but not permanently. I am very happy with my college living situation. I am given freedom to do whatever I want while also attending my college. The sun also makes living here easy because who doesn't enjoy the sun? I love that I can go tan by the pool on weekends while studying!

I haven't had a single issue where I've needed the police but I have seen them crash parties in my area. I only really see them occasionally driving the streets but other than that they just come when called. I haven't had issues with vandalism or anything either because my apartment has security on foot 24/7 along with a camera system. I feel very safe.
