    The community here in Delaware is okay. Since I am more of a city person Delaware seems very boring because there isn't much that happens here. The college I attend (Delaware State University) is really great! The people are helpful, friendly, and kind.

    I would like to see the the roads get fixed, because some of them need repair due to the previous snowstorms we've had.

    I always see people in and outside of my development running, jogging, or walking. I think people here take their health very seriously.
