Small town? No big deal. It makes getting on a first name basis with the police before you get in trouble real easy. Helps too. First thing you do in a bar is locate the piss hole. First thing you do when you move to a small town is meet the police. First name basis always helps.

Good advise.

Conway is a weird place though, virtually 100% of it's growth is white flight from Little Rock or UCA related.  It is hard to call it a growing city, more like a suburb or even exurb/bedroom city.

Small college towns are appealing because EVERYTHING is geared towards the university and EVERYTHING is catered to the student body. And if we're talking about athletes, then they get more of a celebrity status in smaller towns too.


Starkville is about twice the size of the town I grew up in, so even having a movie theatre like Gainesville does is a big deal.

I went to college in a town of 100,000 people 25 minutes away from Nashville, but it still felt and acted like a college town
