If you like the small-town feel, the town of Brunswick is great! Everything shuts down at 1am, so not for those who want to party all night, but people will recognize you in town and in general the townies are pretty nice to the students.

I moved to Brunswick when I was in the 6th grade. It's a really pleasant area that is really maineish. I live in the rural area off Durham and its pleasant in the woods.

There are a mix of large chains and small locally owned businesses. You can pretty much get everything you need. It's not the best area for shopping, but it's certainly not the worst.
