I currently live here while my spouse finishes graduate school at UIUC. It is a nice small college town. However, while it might not be Madison or Austin, it is probably more diverse than most would expect for a town of its size.
Like most larger places if you know where to look there is quite a lot to do here (check out the Buzz or Hub free weeklys).
Summer is the best time, but then I dislike [undergrad] students walking/driving in the streets without looking for cars! They also tend not to know how to drive either.
The major complaint I have is that there isn’t a good selection of Indian restaurants (I think it is just Basmati on First Street, am I wrong?).over 7 years ago
But a crazy college town! I lived here for 6 years in college and grad school. I enjoyed living here much more when I was off campus with “real people.” Summertime was my favorite. I made a lot of great memories here…met my husband, adopted my beloved dog…I miss living here.over 7 years ago
