A county like setting, there aren't much of anything around me except for corn fields. There are also no close grocery stores but there are 2 dollar stores near.

Its a small town, and when you attend the school there, people around the town support each other for the most part. Also, for being a small town, they have many events to get the town together and help raise money for causes.
