Default Indiana pa vs bloomsburgh, lewisburg

Can anyone tell me what their thoughts are on indiana pa? Is it similar to lewisburg or bloomsburg? Is it livable for families and can families live within walking distance of the university and have actual family neighborhoods that arent totally college kids?? Thanks for any help!

I lived in Indiana for three years, and it's mostly college kids with a spattering of families who see anyone who hasn't lived there three generations as outsiders to be ignored/spited because they might bring in more college students.

No, there are thousands of non-college students.

I have spent 20 years in Indiana... moved away and realized there are few towns like it. It is one of the best towns in Pennsylvania. Great downtown, lots of activities with the university right in town... fantastic parks. It is really a picturesque town that has definately re-invented itself like few towns in Pennsylvania have been able to do. Schools are great, crime is low. 'Wino' had it wrong... this is not a town just filled with college students. There are a lot of working professionals and young families that are actually very welcoming. With the university in town there are a lot of people that are new to the area, new professors, grad students, and undergrad students that have decided to put down roots... so locals don't view people as outsiders but are actually pretty welcoming. Check it out... Its hard not to like this town. Real Estate is very affordable too.
