Arkedelphia is nearby my residence in Amity, Arkansas. I travel to Arkedelphia about 3-4 times a week for various reasons. There is major diversity in the area and plenty job opportunities. Henderson State University is where I would like to attend college in the fall of 2017, which is located in Arkedelphia. The area is relatively small and commuted. There is also an Interstate, I-30, which goes through Arkedelphia, which helps for traveling and getting to places faster.

Overall a decent town, friendly people, nice scenery, that kind of stuff. It's quite a safe town, very little crime, and what there is is mostly non-violent. The town has no nightlife to speak of, however, and is rather boring for a college town, but this is Arkansas, after all. It's not exactly the MOST diverse town in the world, but does pretty well for the location. The town is rather small, which means that everyone knows everyone else, which can be irritating, but also means that it only takes a few minutes at most to get anywhere in the town. Again, overall a good town, with just a few small problems.

Arkadelphia, Arkansas caters more towards the elderly people than the younger people. There is not much to do, but it is a quiet and relaxing town. There are two colleges here, which can get rowdy if you live nearby, otherwise they aren't bothersome. Arkadelphia has one of the best sheriff's in the state, so crime is kept to a minimum. Besides the fact that there is nothing to do, it's an amazing place to call home.
