University Park Reviews

If I could choose to live here all over again, I'm not sure which choice I would make. This area seems poor when compared to what I'm use to and the education system is behind, but I love that I've met the people that I've met here. This was one of the best school years for me considering how the students made me feel plus I started to date for the first time in this area. I'm currently in a good relationship with someone who plans on doing something in their life with a good head on his shoulders and I admire that. I'm very ambitious and want a lot for myself and I wouldn't want to be with someone or have any friends whose gonna bring me down. Is everyone in this area good and welcoming? No, but you do learn a lot of life lessons in this area and it's an area that'll help you to get street smart and learn the difference and realities of what's going on around in the world all over. I wouldn't want to live in this area again because I'd want to continue to receive a good education and be recognized by people all over the world; However, at the same time, I would want to visit this area again because you encounter everything for a reason. If I hadn't moved in this area, I would've never acquired the extra knowledge that I now know of the world and of my work, plus, I would've never found this kind of love and friendship from the many people I've come across.
