I have only been living in Bryan, TX since January of this year but so far it has been a wonderful experience. Local government has been working on several reconstruction projects to restore Downtown Bryan, and there are many new businesses popping up around town that are typically owned and run by recent college graduates. I enjoy living in Bryan because it is close to campus while still being removed from all the constant hustle and bustle of College Station.

I have lived in Bryan my entire life and i absolutely love the area. Bryan is not the smallest town but also not the largest either, allowing for easy transportation. Bryan is also home to the the fighting Texas Aggie's my dream school. If i would suggest any improvements it would be more attractions for people visiting Bryan.

I would I not choose to live here again. Because of the individuals that are moving into the apartment complex. They are not respectful of there surroundings they leave the parking with trash and dirty diapers as if walking another 25 feet to the dumpster is so hard. Seems like the apartment complex owners do not care who lives there as long as they pay there rent on time. So they are really just about a dollar ,but I do understand that not every place will be high class but there should always be rules in order so that people can not run free and make living uncomfortable for those who do believe in keeping there living area well kept.
