Wadley is a very friendly town. I attend school here and it is amazing how nice everyone is on a daily basis. The campus and surrounding area is very clean and inviting. The people that live in the community makes everyone feel like you have been a part of this town all of their lives. Once I graduate from college, this would be a great place to work. The atmosphere of the college campus here is so wonderful. All of the professors are willing to help in anyway that they can to further your career. If you are looking for a small town that is friendly and like family, you need to visit Wadley.

Having grown up here, I know lots of people. It is however, a very small town and so anything you do is known by the whole community.
