I have to agree. Legitimate small town feel, surprisingly robust local economy and the nicest climate in the Big 10. It's one of the few campuses I've been in that seem to have both a pretty vibrant town and campus without one overpowering the other.K Rock wrote:Not sure why you bumped this thread just to say this, but you are wrong. Bloomington is an awesome place to live. Relatively low cost of living, tons of great food spots, lots of vegetation/trees. Not sure what you have to complain about if you live close to campus.buchy2009 wrote:FWIW, Bloomington is not a very nice place to live. People rave about it only because it is the best place in Indiana, not because it is actually nice. It probably would have been pretty fun to be there in undergrad, but is pretty awful for professional/graduate school.
The biggest downside is that it is a good hour from a major city and decent airport, which I think makes luring in OCI firms harder.
