    Housing at Foothills: The off-campus student houses are very old and in most cases worn down. Landlords assume college students will live anywhere regardless the quality (unfortunately they are also pretty right) and charge far more than the run down locations deserve. Landlords need to at least have working and new appliances and clean, working furniture. 10+ year old mattresses anyone?

    Local Businesses at Foothills: There is a large variety of all types of businesses throughout the city. There are large companies right alongside chain restaurants right next to mom-and-pop shops, and they are all frequented about the same.
    • 3
    Employment at Foothills: I am currently searching for employment. Many jobs here are either full-time/post-education jobs, or extremely cheap minimum wage part-time jobs. I am a full-time student and searching for a real (non-fast food) part-time job, which seems non-existent.
