I absolutely love Bloomington. For a town in Southern Indiana, it is fantastic. I wouldn't choose anywhere else to grow up. There are plenty of things to do and so much diversity. I feel safe as a member of the LGBTQ community and that in invaluable. I love the University and the dynamic it brings. We have a vibrant downtown and I had a great and accepting high school experience that offered me so many opportunities I could not have gotten elsewhere.

I feel very safe in my neighborhood and the places I choose to hang out. I'm sure, however, that there are other people who would not say the same thing. I also would not feel safe to go anywhere alone at night. Sex offenders and creepy people are unfortunately always on the mind when it comes to women going anywhere alone or at night.
I have lived in Bloomington since I was two years old. My parents, and each of their parents also grew up in Bloomington, and the surrounding area. When it came time to apply for college, I was sure I wanted to leave Bloomington, even though Indiana University was quite literally in my own back yard. It has been a great town to grow up in. There are excellent schools, both private and public. There are many cultural opportunities, religious establishments, restaurants, and local shops.

I have had the opportunity to attend Big Ten sporting events like basketball, volleyball, football, and more. Athletics at IU are entertaining, affordable, and traditional. It is thrilling to see up close the enthusiastic, interactive , devoted fans of IU athletics. There are things to do year round. In the fall, there are always cookouts, tailgates, and festivals. In the winter we have ice skating, decent hills for sledding, and good sales in the mall and local stores. In the spring, campus is beautiful with blossoming trees, the lake is easily accessible and a relaxing location for sunbathing, fishing, boating, or swimming.

While it is great here all year long, I think my favorite time in Bloomington is summer. When the students have returned home for the summer, it leaves us the entire campus open, uncrowded. For these few months, we enjoy all the benefits of a mid-larger city, without the population to match it. Restaurants stay open, seats available throughout the theater (both movies, and theatrical productions).

Alas, each year summer comes to an end, and Bloomington gladly welcomes back its returning students. The leaves begin to change, and the cycle starts all over again.
