Question Best spot to live in State College without a car

Hi guys,
I'm relocating to State College in April, coming from France. I will be working at PSU and I've started looking for an apartment. From what I've read, SC looks like a nice place to live (I hope even when you're not into American Football... but I've lived in Australia without being into cricket so I'm hopeful!)
I won't have a car and I love to move around walking or riding. I'm wondering what would be the best spot to live.
I'm thinking more of the eastern part of the campus, cos I've seen a lot of apartments there and also quite a few parks where running and riding could be fun. Mount Nittany would not be too far...
Any other options??
I don't mind being a bit further away but I know winters are cold over there so riding an hour to go to work when it's freezing is not really my thing!
Any suggestions for a quiet area, with shops for food not miles away and green areas would be welcome!! Thanks for your help!!

This post is a little old but I thought I'd reply anyway. Anywhere there are big apartments there is a bus route that runs nearby. And there is a big cycling community and trails to get from t apartments onto campus safely. It kinda depends on if you want to be near college kids or not.

Lemont doesn't seem to have a lot of college kids in the town, and you can easily cycle or take a bus in with out much problem. I lived up N. Atherton behind the Walmart and walked to campus several times. There is also a bus service and bike route right onto campus. Good Luck
