You should head for Campus, lots of great places to eat and great night life. Pizza is what I miss, so many different kinds. I lived in St. Joe just east of Champaign from 1974-1978 and went to high school there. Many great times were spent in Champaign as a teenager just driving around Campus. I miss the friends I made at that time the most. I think the best friends are made in High school and to live so far away from them is to Miss them alot.(KY)
I'm very impressed by this small town city. At only 2 1/2 hours drive from Chicago, it's like another world down there! Their world is the University of Illinois!
Dominated by the university life, this town is young, vibrant, alive, interesting and outgoing! Everywhere you go, there are students, working, studying, reading, hanging out, and having fun. It's a conducive place to study, and a nice place to visit, too!
"Welcome to the University of Illinois..."
The Alma Mater Statue welcomes students to the University. It is located at the west gateway to the University on Green and Wright Streets. Designed by University graduate Lorado Taft, the statue was unveiled on June 12, 1929. The inscription reads: To thy happy children of the future those of the past send greetings.
Called the Illini Union, it is considered one of the most significant buildings on campus, because of its location, character, quality, and use. Excellent place for students to study, read and hang out. I've also heard it's the best place for napping!
