Champaign is a vibrant city. It's a college town with a micro-urban feel. There's plenty of opportunities to find work at all levels and in most industries and the cost of living is very good. Overall great place to live and learn.
It is a very diverse place with many friendly people and a lot of opportunities. I have really enjoyed living here so far.
