Vassar Reviews

I have just recently moved to Vassar last September and I really do enjoy it. I love that the community has put together farmers markets, Easter egg hunts, and other activities for kids to enjoy. The community comes together when there is a problem (such as donating money to help an older women with her home) and their protections of their children and the schools. I feel as though I could raise my kids here and live the rest of my life in this small, happy, friendly town!

Vassar is a great town if you like the peace and quiet. Vassar used to be a very thriving town but in the past few years has decreased. However, in the past two years Vassar has opened up many new and friendly small businesses. I believe that Vassar is definitely making a good comeback.
