What Bert Has To Say About Champaign-Urbana Metro Area

Champaign-Urbana is an agricultural center as well as home to the University of Illinois. It is a clean agricultural town well rounded by its college presence. The cities offer what one would expect from a large Big Ten university town: entertainment, top sporting events, good museums, and a mix of restaurants. The area has a strong economic base anchored by agriculture and the presence of a number of research and technology companies, some of which are affiliated with the university.
