Well, what did you expect?

The places we like in the Midwest exist, but they can be counted on about two hands and are spaced far apart from each other.

Obviously, if you haven't already, you need to budget for all those trips to Chicago and Madison. In the meantime, there's nothing like ... cable TV.

Beloit doesn't exactly scream that out to attract young people.

Milwaukee and Madison and Chicago are nice and not that far, but too far for me, atleast for right now. I enjoy going to football or baseball and basketball games etc, concerts, restaurants and other places with more people my same age... and to do so around here requires planning and takes a whole day, or weekend as opposed to living closer to a big city and just going when you feel like it.

Again I am not ripping Beloit, but for a younger person, from out of the area, you are not going to meet too many young people as it is an older population and there isn't a whole lot to do.
Sounds like someone didn't do their homework.

you are correct my friend. I came from MI and accepted the job when I was still finishing school. Obviously, no jobs in Michigan as everyone seems to know.
