College Station has been my home for nearly 40 years. It is a great place to raise a family and enjoy the facilities and opportunities this community provides.

Came here in 1989 for college and never left. Best place to raise a family, be part of a community who share common beliefs, work hard but be able to leave at 5:00 and be home by 5:15 for family time, and everywhere you go will be treated with a friendly smile and a howdy to boot. And our college students are some of the most respectful group of young adults you'll ever meet. They are involved in the community and just make our city feel young and energized. After 23 years, there is no where else I'd rather live.
