I'd personally go with Bloomington. Nearby Brown County State Park is AMAZING, especially in the fall. IU adds to the city's amenities, and you're only an hour from Indianapolis in case you ever wanted to drive up for a night on the town.

But, to be fair, I've never been to Berea (but I've heard nice things ) and I haven't spent much time in Fayetteville.

Fayetteville is a nice area, but not really close to any major cities. Would have a lot of amenities, nonetheless. I would probably still go with Bloomington.

I too would choose Bloomington. It has a lot going on, is surprisingly sophisticated with great shopping and restaurants, affordable, quite safe and close to larger cities. Fayetteville wouldn't be a bad option but I feel it's a bit isolated versus Bloomington, with the nearest big city two hours away in Tulsa OK.
