3 College Junior

Local Area: I'm from a small violent city called Chester Pa, so Dover is nothing to me. I have noticed it's steadily gotten worse since 2012.

Dover is a kinda do nothing town. Downtown Dover is probably the best thing about the town. You can walk around the historical district, you can walk downtown and it's nice. The Schwartz center has shows there and the Biggs Museum/Archives. It's not bad but it's not great.

A car does help.

Local Area: There's always some shooting going on. It gets annoying and makes you paranoid when you go out

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: school is in the middle of Dover, theres a small mall 5 mins down the road. an hour away from the beaches and huge mall.

3 College Junior

Local Area: There's no baseball, hockey, football, or soccer team around unless high school and college teams count. The mall is improving, but after a few months you've seen everything.
