Conflict of Ideals Posted On: 7/19/2007 10:55:42 PM
Terre Haute is a decent place to live, your average midwestern city in my mind. Terre Haute, although, shouldn't be as average as it is. Terre Haute is a city with a a community college, a state college, and two private colleges (one being one of the top ranked engineering colleges in the country). Usualy college towns are quite free-thinking advanced, more open to partying and wiht decently educated citizens. This is not Terre Haute; Terre Haute suffers in many aspects from a conflict of ideals between the younger age group and the older age group. Terre Haute is becomming a "safe heaven" for the retired due to its low cost of living, etc. and therefore halting any political progress or progress in other forms because the older generation are fearful of the onset of a college town ideology.
