3 College Freshman

Local Area: The square in downtown Denton is a popular area to hang out at. There are great restaurants there and the lawn in front of the courthouse is a popular spot to hang out at. The square has some cute antique/boutique shops. Denton is very artsy and is known for being a miniature Austin, Texas. I personally would not want to live in Denton after graduation.
