Safe and convenient living

I live near the UB North campus in Amherst, NY. I’ve lived pretty much everywhere off campus, but I like Amherst a lot — it's really safe and a convenient location for school and work. I can take a walk at 3 a.m., and the roads are clear in winter.

I really like this area because there are always lots of activities to do. It has great restaurants and rents are affordable, too. Since graduating I've tried the Corporate Challenge race with my office mates, gone rock climbing, bike riding, and Lasertron, and I finally went skydiving!
