Truly the most patriotic town in America!
I love and miss College Station so much. Some of my best memories are of BCS. Beautiful people and a beautiful city. Will love it always.
Great place to live, low crime rate, great schools, friendly neighbors. Businesses that actually cared about the community and not just money. Would move back in a second if the opportunity would arise.
I've lived in Texas all my life, and came to College Station 15 years ago. First place I've experienced people pulling over when they see a funeral procession. My heart melted and I've lived here and don't plan on leaving.
Welcoming faces everywhere you turn. People willing to help at every corner. There's just a feeling of benevolence from the people in this town.
