    I don't live there but have lots of friends that do it's a college town so be prepared to party lol Dixon at is a great place to pub crawl and they have some great trails to drive and some really twisty roads just watch your speed on I540 I got a 140 in a 70 zone ticket cost me 1500 and suspended DL west fork is just down the road and pretty low key oh and the traffic is a birch. But beaver lake is a blast and you are 2.5 hours from Branson and about an hour from eureka springs which is really pretty and it snows there too lol.

    That's funny, was there at Halloween by accident a few years ago. It was amazing. Blocked off the whole town I think. I liked the school but didn't make my daughter's short list. :shrug:

    Yes Athens is a really good school, too bad it didn't make her final decision place to go. My wife received her Masters there and also taught there for a while. Small town for sure, but overall a laid back area . Lots of people in the 70s ( and well later ) came to college there and never left. :icon_lol:Lots of small businesses owned by them in the area.

    They do have a great reputation. Given the choice that's the kind of place I would have chosen. Town was great and the rural areas around it were appealing to me. She liked it alot but was looking for something smaller but closer to a bigger city. Just can't tell them anything at that age but she did okay. :shrug:

    Come on to Arkansas tom tons of trails here in the natural state and we could always use more lifted kj's! What does you wife teach? My mom is and adjunct professor at Arkansas State here in Jonesboro. Jonesboro is a great place to live! Exceptionally low cost of living in comparison to the high wages of the local economy, ranked in the top of the nation for strong and thriving economy with small town values.

    I'm sure Arkansas State has some sort of position in that area, they have a very large portion of Chinese and middle eastern students who could use a course or two!
