I've lived in champaign a while and it is a great home I love living here. there are lots of things to do.
I prefer living in smaller cities compared to bigger cities such as new york or Chicago. I feel very peace full in Champaign. There are also great parks that I visit quit frequently which makes my experience in Champaign really good.
Champaign has a lot to offer people wanting a bigger and more populated environment than the countryside but not as big as a major city. Public transportation can easily get you to anywhere in the city you want but there is always a new place to explore. Additionally, since Champaign is a college town, it has a lively campustown filled with places to get food, clothes, and more. You can even watch D1 level sports and support the University of Illinois.
Champaign-Urbana is an incredible community to work in and be a part of. The university brings so much life to the town, and there are always new and exciting adventures waiting to be discovered!
Champaign is a great community and really friendly. Champaign has a lot to offer where there is Parkland College and University of Illinois to improve future in the work world.
Champaign is a cute little town in the middle of nowhere. Campustown is completely run by university students but downtown is quiet and cute.
I've been live here for two years, and it is a calm town. Many young people live here because of the UIU.
Champaign is an excellent area to live, with much growth potential, and opportunities for all. As with any city, there are areas for improvement, but overall the community takes pride in themselves and it's a pleasant area to live. One of the biggest benefits is the abundant resources for healthy living - several gyms, natural/organic and health-focused stores, and a large number of cultural stores (asian, indian, etc.) where you can get fresh ingredients to cook a wide variety of cuisines.
Champaign is an amazing place to be raised in. There is a wide variety of middle school and high school options, and a college option for everyone (U of I and Parkland). The town is perfect because there is always something to do, but it is never too crowded. Kids from towns all around come to Champaign on weekends. Another great thing is its location. Champaign is about two and a half hours from Chicago, Indianapolis, and Saint Louis. Also, being in the midwest means that we experience all four seasons to their full extent, which is a great thing. Champaign is ranked the number 2 college town in the nation for a reason. The football and basketball fanbase is unmatched anywhere else, and the whole city shows our pride for the University of Illinois.
I love that Champaign has the charm of a small town with the conveniences of a city. As a college town, Champaign is able to support many more shops and restaurants than other cities it’s size.
Champaign needs more emphasis on their public school systems. The children in these systems grow up and eventually become members of this society. We need to have better schooling from a young age here to keep our society booming. There have been improvements in other areas, but I really think the push for funding for our Unit 4 system is important and needs to continue if there is going to be any real change within the school systems themselves.
Born and raised here. It’s grown a lot over the last 10 years. It’s a bigger city but feels like a small town.
The community is diverse and there is a plethora of resources available to support every individual and family.
Champaign is a great town. I have lived here my whole life and have met so many amazing people! Even though it isn't a super large town, it feels big. I enjoy calling Champaign my home.
champaign I a great college town, it offers a good nightlife due to the University of Illinois. I would really like to see more emphasis placed on saftey though as champaign is becoming dangerous.
Very diverse and safe town. There is always something to do in the city, either a football game at the local college(the University of Illinois), seeing a movie at the brand new movie theaters, going to the planetarium, or just exploring the downtown.
What I have experienced with Champaign is it has great schools. I love that it is a college town. The neighborhood in which I live is very family and pet friendly. It's safe and quiet and has friendly neighbors. Champaign has affordable living, great restaurants, public transportation and that's what I really like because I don't have a car.
