It's a decent area. There is a fair amount to do around here. It can get a little noisy sometimes though. I think this area needs to add a few new attractions to keep people around, otherwise I think most people will probably move.

I love being close to campus and downtown but with all the other college students around, it get's really loud at nights.
I personally haven't had any issues finding employment since I moved to Saint Cloud. It's a good sized city with a lot of businesses, which means a lot of available positions.
