    Chico is a great community, theres tons of things to do and its a true college town. Everything you could need is within walking/biking distance. All of my professors have been very friendly and personable and more than willing to add time to their scheduled hours to help you with anything. Plus it is a great place to meet people since almost everyone in the town is around your age.
