I love living in Aggieland! I'm not an Aggie, but I know a good thing when I see it. It's just the right size to make getting around town easy. Everywhere is within 5-20 minutes of my home, located on the outskirts of town. It's just the right distance between all the major cities I could want to visit: Houston, Austin, San Antonio, and Dallas. Just a 2 or 3 hour drive away is everything a big city offers, but I don't have to live in the hustle and bustle and deal with big city traffic. The people are friendly, the weather is great, it's clean and has great education. I wouldn't want to live anywhere else!

I have been here for over 10 years and I love that it has the feel of the small town that I grew up in, where everybody and their dog knows you, but in College Station at least the dog doesn't know you.
