Introduction of Community (20 points) Identify the city and state of your community and briefly describe the community you will be using for this assignment. It should be the area where you live or the area surrounding your work setting but must include a residential area. Demographic data are not needed. The community I am using for this assignment is Baton Rouge, Louisiana. I live in Priairieville, Louisiana and is about 15 minutes away from Baton Rouge. Most people would say Priairieville is town on the outside of Baton Rouge. Baton Rouge is Louisiana’s state capital. The downtown area is a political area. It has a river port on the Mississippi River. Baton Rouge comes from the French word “Red Stick”. According to the U. S. Census Bureau as of July 1, 2015; the population of Baton Rouge is 228,590 (U. S. Census Bureau). The people from this area are very welcoming, friendly, family oriented, and respectful. It is home to Louisiana State University. A wide variety of people live in Baton Rouge from college students to high class business owners. Baton Rouge is a tourist town and most people who come here love it. 2. Windshield Survey (75 points) a. Vitality: Use a majority of the questions from Box 6- 2 in your text to describe your observations about the community vitality. The Baton Rouge community is a huge area. There are high class people that live on the south side of the area and the northern part of the area are low income persons. In the southern side is mostly urban development with nice brick homes and nice cars. The streets and yards are well kept and free from liter. I did not see anyone walking on the streets and not a lot of bus stops. There are shops and lots of boutiques. As I traveled into the northern area, I started to see more people walking on the streets and a group of people holding a card board sign asking for money and food. I would assume these are homeless people because they are dirty, have holes in their clothes and are carrying a bunch of big bags. The homes are older and more broken down. There is liter and bus stop areas. These people who live in the northern part of Baton Rouge are more low-income to average households.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
