Setting & Lifestyle
Raymond is a small town where college students really create the town feel and character. So many small towns have lost population over the last 20-30 years that having the local college presence in the Raymond area, with all of the energy of the students filling area dorms and apartments each fall, really helps Raymond maintain a good economy.
For a small city, there is also a high proportion of single, often educated, people living in Raymond. This is not typical for smaller communities in America, and adds a feeling of vibrancy to Raymond.
Raymond is a small city, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.
