3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: In my eyes, it's more like a small town. I'm comfortable with the small area so that I know where things are. I'm really a country girl so It's like home to me. Way better than just being in a big city. The fact that Texas Southern University was a part of history is enough of an area attraction for me. I don't really look for things to do around the city, it's not my forte.

Local Atmosphere: Houston is a great place to live! There is usually a lot going on here and for the most part its fun and a little diverse. We even have local sports teams that you can come see at any time without traveling anywhere far.
