Yes, partly you right. I chose a small town, because I prefer small towns, even thoug the people in them conservative. I myself live in a Russian city, with a population of about half a million inhabitants. But I do not live in the city center, although my family lived there previously, we chose a house in the suburbs.

Yes, you are right, I can go to America as a student. I have noted this option.
As for the communities in large cities - it is a complex issue. On the Internet I read many times about the fact that newcomers to America deceived the people who promised to help. And the big city, I do not like, I have already said.
I think the move to Сouncil Bluffs. Through the Missouri River opposite the Council Bluffs is Omaha, and there lives a man who deals with social adaptation. He himself from Russia, I watched his videos on YouTube, in my opinion, it is unlikely he will cheat. But the appeal to this man - an extreme step.

In general, I rely only on himself.

Omaha is a wonderful city, lots to do for younger folks, a great zoo, cultural activities. Some crime in some areas. As I recall there is a substantial Russian population. UNO is a very good University as well. I would choose Omaha over Council Bluffs except if you want to own a home; taxes are rough in Nebraska.
