I just moved back to Sherman, my hometown, from Dallas. I was there for four years and got to experience some of what it had to offer. My family and friends are in Sherman so I was ready to come back home. I would be even more excited to be back if there were more social activities for people my age such as poetry slams, Dave N Busters and more museums. I also wish that there were more affordable housing options. The college that I'm currently attending has a great reputation and a pretty good list of degrees to choose from so I'm satisfied with that. As far as the crime rate, I'm not really sure of how much happens but it's not as much as Dallas. In my opinion, it's a great place to settle down and raise a family. Overall, I love my little town!

Clean and friendly! Everyone waves, lots of recreations and things to do. Great lake close by to do some fishing and boating. Good schools with good education.
I have grown up here, and I love my community. It is small and quaint. The problem is there isn't much to do, but we should be seeing the building of activity areas like bowling soon. The people are friendly, violent crime is low. The biggest crime we have here is theft. Our teachers are great here, but the current high school is completely over crowded, but a bond was recently passed to build a new one.
