Not a bad motel, nice neighborhood, right next to Red Lobster and the College mall. You're FAR from the only part of Bloomington that could be considered "bad" right there. What brings you to town?

When are you going to be here? Some of the Indiana members are meeting at the Texas Roadhouse in Bloomington on Saturday, January 21 at 2:00 PM for dinner. I'm less than a half hour from Bloomington.

Hello!

Crib: Going to be touring the law school-- may be applying there for admission in fall 07.

M4Madness: Crap! I'm flying back home (and will be in WI as of 01/16 or 01/17 ) on 01/22. I'd love to meet up with everybody, but you're meeting up a week too late.

Beet223: Good question for me as well!

Hey, anyone know how far is this place from the college area itself?

Thanks,

Mike

to a fellow future Hoosier!

As a grad of IU, I'd have to say there really isn't a "bad side" of town like Indy or Chicago. It's an interesting city because you have the college kids, university employees (libs), and the regular joe - blue collar working people. There are dumpy sections mainly where the college kids trash their apartments or houses they rent, but nothing I'd worry about.

I'd tell your daughter to not rent anything owned by Elkins Properties - I rented from them and they are total a-holes. They love to rake college kids over the coals.

From that hotel you could walk to campus, but you would be on the far east side of campus near the Music school. Bad part of town! compared to Pheonix, Bloomington is like May Berry, but with a crap load of Libtards. Its is a nice college town you don't have to worry about being jump really anytime like you do in other places. Late at night I always felt OK by myself. For a women it is a different story. I was born and raised there but I don't live there now, I moved to a more gun friendly area west of there.

Add Sharon Tynan to that list. I'll refrain from profanity...but it's hard.
