This comes from a native son and a proud ISU alum, there are both pros and cons of Terre Haute. Some of the cons are it's fairly poor (compared to other places I have lived: Champaign and north Indy) and a lot of low end service jobs and not enough professional jobs. There is a major brain drain in this town. Like someone else said, TH needs to take a page from Bloomington's playbook and use the colleges as pillars. However, this leads to another problem: the leadership; some want the factories to come back and some of the other leaders like to be big fishes in the little pond. The pros are there is a lot history and potential in TH. If the city leadership can get their crap together and use the aforementioned potential and history and low cost of living, TH could be awesome.
