College Station Texas has some very friendly folks. The Aggies are awesome, always helping the community, helping people stranded on the side of the road. We are known for the word "HOWDY!", which is the word all Aggies use and has spread throughout the community. I believe Texans are just natually overly friendly, which is a good thing. I have friends from California that have moved here and love it, they are always saying how friendly everyone is.
