Champaign urbana does have alot to offer, both on and off campus. Im feeling really disconnected from my academic life right now, and I need something else. Ive been looking on yelp and lists of things to do in the area and im happy with whats availble for me in this area: farmers market, good used bookstores, surprizingly amusing art museums, IMPE gym, good restaurants ( i need a good place i can frequent), ethnic food stores.
What i really want though is closer "regular" shopping, and maybe some forest preserve.
what i really want is a club i can really care about.
