Vermillion is a great place to live. Everything is close, and everybody is friendly in general. For all of the people living here (10,000+ residents as well as college students) I wish there were more amenities. But overall, I love it! The campus is beautiful.

I have attended school here in Vermillion for a total of 3 and a half years. It is a great little town. There are plenty of places to enjoy during your free time such as the movies, fine dining, college friendly bar life, beautiful scenery down by the river, a dog park, and so much more!
I moved here to be near family after escaping a domestic violence relationship from another state. Vermillion has been an exceptionally supportive community with many positive opportunities to get my life on track. The people and the resources here are simply amazing!
