Wilberforce is a small, university town. It offers a quiet and safe environment away from the city. The colleges add quite a bit to the population during the school year.

I like how small and clean it is but i think they should more stores built or like a movie theater or bowling alley or something because it gets boring not having anything to do.
Everything is average because i am from Illinois so its very different for me but i love it because its quiet and different from the city. i love it.
