I've lived all over the world & there's just no friendlier city on the planet than College Station, Texas. And you don't have to be an Aggie (A&M student/graduate) to find a friend here...the city's residents embrace the diversity that comes with a world-class university...it's a place where everyone still has a smile & a wave for you.
