I have chosen College Station as my home because there is no other place like it. You have the small town feeling with big town amenities.

I grew up in west Texas and my parents still have a lovely house there, but College Station will always be my "home." There is no place like it!

I have been in the College Station area for 47 years and have traveled to many other cities around the country and I have not said to myself that I would rather live anywhere else. College Station is genuinely the friendliest Town in America.
