There are tons of minimum wage jobs (ie McDonalds, Wlamrt clerk, gas station worker), but not as many higher paying jobs good for college students.

Everybody here is pretty friendly, and as I moved through my education, I met more and more diverse people in ethnicity, sexuality, and experiences.
There aren't very many locally owned shops, so they're pretty scarce since there are so many corporate companies in the city.
