Champaign-Urbana

The Quad at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign

Always great to be back in Urbana Champaign, a college town in the middle of rural Illinois where I spent four amazing years as an undergrad. The metropolitan area has been marketed as a “micro-urban” community formed a result of the college student population here.

Eats

Black Dog Smoke and Ale House

No trip to Champaign is complete without a trip to Black Dog Smoke and Ale House. Make sure to get their burnt ends because they do run out!

Nostalgia

Well this was mostly a nostalgia trip but the blog is titled IlliniAbroad and we can’t have a post without UIUC (they’ve since rebranded to “Illinois”, but for those of us who were around during the controversial “Chief” era it’ll always be UIUC) in there.

The Alma Mater and Altgeld Hall

This post took way too long to do. I acknowledge this.
