Review of College Station, Texas


Growing Way Too Fast
Star Rating - 8/6/2014
My wife and I have lived here for most of the last 25 years. Bryan-College Station used to have a nice hometown feel, but the real estate developers have discovered that we have a big school here. The traffic has become like every other strip-mall town around DFW and Houston and the tackiness of the new buildings going up everywhere makes Conroe look like Paris. The university administration has adopted a "growth-for-growth's sake" mantra and the quality of education is plummeting. Luckily, we can retire and get out in a few years -- I just hope we can make it.
