This town is more visibly inhabited by college students who are attending the college nearby. Most of the business is catered to students especially the shops downtown, however with that said, it would be better to make some of the smaller shops more visible to students in order to boost business and economic opportunities for the community.

The general atmosphere here has been unhappy ignorant, arrogant, and oblivious. Most people here do not recognize how certain policies are detrimental to this country. Most people are rude here and think that they are that life revolves around them. Most are oblivious to what is going on in the world and how it will affect us. Most people are unhappy here because they are never satisfied and their life revolves around money. I believe this is because this city is the most post Christian city in all of America (2015).
The overall area of the community lacks in essence: People. Because the people are leaving this city, there has been houses, infrastructure, and roadwork that has fallen to disrepair. And because of this falling reputation, more people will try to leave as soon as possible in their ability leaving this city to be more of a ghost town than it already is.
