i am a 23yr old who will be moving to the area in a few weeks. i have lived all over the united states and currently moving from the lehigh valley are of PA. my mother works for a large pharmaceutical company in Indy and lives in Fishers. she claims to love it because of the diversity and low cost of living compared to PA. i am still starting of in my career, i graduated from college in 2005. i am looking to get my foot in the door when i get there and also attend graduate school. what's it like for people in their early 20's just starting out? i know the one reason i don't like this area of PA so much is because of the lack of professional jobs, lack of diversity and the fact that i am surrounded by people who are twice my age have nothing really in common with. can someone chime in as to what to expect from this area. good and bad. thanks

I think you will like Indy. There are a lot of colleges which draw students from all over the world. I just met some Thai dentist students getting their PHDs. I love the diversity that the colleges bring to Indy. There are clubs and activities all over.

1. Finding yourself a job will be number one.

2. Find a place to live that is around the activities you enjoy. Take a little time to find what is best for you. It is also great to live somewhat close to where you work to reduce commuting cost and time.

3. Check out NUVO, the alternative newspaper, and the Star's weekly Intake for activities. Have your Mom save some or send them to you.

4. Check out feedme-drinkme.blogspot.com for some irreverant food and activity ideas for Indy. He also lists a lot of Indy blogs on the right side of his. Lots of young and hip ideas.
