How is it? i live in Kentucky and am used to being in the mountains all of the time. Im applying to Navarro College in fall of 2012 for their John Deere program... I'm going there during late March to take care of some college business, what is it like? Where should I go and not go? Before I hear about how small it is, know that my town has about 10,000 people, and the are 30 people in my senior class. i am used to small towns, so it doesn't phase me. Im more interested in the farm land and rodeos, what's it like? Which restaurants/stores/recreationa l place should i go to or not go to????? Thanks.

Then is the perfect place for you. There’s nothing here, just a bunch of “redneck” restaurants… Good luck…

Corsicana is about twice the size of your town. It's surrounded by rural farms and ranches. You can pretty much walk to a farm from the college. It is very hot here in the summer. We don't really have seasons to speak of and winters are really mild usually. There are local rodeos and cowboy churches and plenty of ag type activities to enjoy. I don't know that there are any 'dangerous' bars or areas in town. You can't buy liquor here except at a RR/bar but beer and wine are sold in stores. Dallas is an hour away and Fort Worth is 1.5 hours. FW has plenty of rodeos and is my home town. Dallas is a little more cosmopolitan. I've only lived here for a little over a year and aside from the lack of ethnic restaurants, places to shop and all of my old friends, I'm satisfied with Corsicana. I came here to live rural so I didn't expect to have all of the amenities a big city offers but wouldn't mind seeing a few of them crop up! Good luck and if you come here, then welcome to Corsicana!

If you went straight from Dallas to SA, then you passed Hillsboro, which is 1/2 hour west of us. Navarro college has a very pretty campus. I've only met the students in stores/RR's but they seem to be a nice enough bunch of folks. I'm sure you'll be right at home here. I didn't know anyone when I moved here but I've made enough friends (even at my age, almost 40), that I'm content. You'll do fine and I think you're smart to go into tractor repair. Useful knowledge and something that will always be needed unless we run out of oil. BTW, Corsicana struck the first oil W. of the Mississippi when they tried to dig a water well for the town. Started the TX oil boom. Lots of history here if you're into that sorta thing. Take care.

The John Deere program has been a success at Navarro College. You should like it here, you will be living in a larger town. But you will not be in a place so big to get lost and find yourself spending all your time on the road. Good Luck to you on your move down here.

From what I've seen I love it! I start Navarro in August and I can't wait. The campus is beautiful and it only takes me almost 2 hours to get home and I live in fort worth.

Haha! Ashley, it takes me more than 2 hours to get home because I won't drive on I-35. I prefer the scenic route anyway. No semi's, very little traffic and no panic attacks. For some reason, I can take I45 to Dallas but not I35 to FW. Oh to the OP, I misspoke. You DID go thru Corsicana if you went from Dallas to Houston. Doy!

It's about the same as it is everywhere else.
