What Is It Like Living in Ave Maria Town?

AveWatch has an interesting post about a recent NBC interview on the basketball coach story in Ave Maria Town:
In an interview released today by WBBH, the NBC affiliate in Cape Coral, Benitez and the NBC reporter made striking comments about the Town of Ave Maria. Apparently, while the news crew was at the house of Benitez, neighbors came over to express their support to him. Later, the neighbors returned, concerned that their support for Benitez might have been caught on tape by the TV crew. The reporter added, "Many of his other neighbors appear nervous too."

Benitez responded on camera, "Everyone for some reason lives in fear here."
Now, I know the media is always looking to sensationalize things, especially when it comes to Ave Maria Town, but we've heard this before with Ave Maria students, athletes, and staff members who are reluctant to talk to media.

So what is it really like at Ave Maria Town and University? Any students or townspeople care to tell us anonymously in the comments?
