    Niche User: The neighborhoods surrounding the campus of UC Riverside can be described as deserted and quiet. However I begged to differ. Walking to and from campus almost everyday I have familiarized myself with the neighborhood quite well. From my stand point, this area is relatively perfect to live in. Besides the one hundred degree weather during the summer, every other aspect of a typical urban neighborhood falls into place here. When I walk down Flanders Drive towards Watkins Avenue, my first encounter is usually the family of five that seems to always be in a rush to get to school. Next is the elder grandmother who adores her garden, after that is the family with every pet and soon enough I bump into the row of houses occupied by the many college students attending university near by. As you can see, this neighborhood is quite like every other. The atmosphere is most definitely one of a calm environment mixed with a diverse community of students and families. It is because of this fine mixture that I chose to live here and continue to do so. Ranked to others, it is small in size. Personally, I count that as a plus. For in the future, I see this community turning into a hub for self-sufficient middle class citizens. Most importantly a hub for go-getter scholars.
