Off-Campus Dining: I am from Chicago. I am used to having all types of different restaurant, but here at siuc there are not many restaurants. The restaurants they do have can be a little annoying to eat from there everyday

Local Atmosphere: Carbondale is the best. The natives are amazing people and love the college students. There is always a local event going on may it be an art show, concert or farmer's market. There are small local boutiques and an average size mall. There is the University's sports and about 20 minutes away there is a minor league baseball team which has cheap tickets and it a lot of fun to go to!

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: There are drugs on this campus although it is nothing that I would ever be too concerned about.
