    Cresson is a small town and doesn’t have much of a social life or public transport.

    It’s a small town, safe but no much to do. You can still find things to do at Altoona.

    The city is very safe. However, it is in the middle of nowhere. Two small cities are close by. However, major cities are no less than 1.5 hours. That said, students know what to expect before they arrive.

    There is nothing much to do in my city because it is just a small town. But people are friendly.

    Everything about Cresson is lovely as it is a small town, so safety is not an issue at all. Transport is very accessible as there are many train and bus routes that leave from the Amtrak station in Altoona. The general store is also available for the small things students need, but for larger purchases, Altoona is very close by.
