Earlham College in Richmond, about half an hour from the Ohio border. Fairly small school, very liberal in a hippie sort of way (so, not in keeping with the general mentality of most small midwestern cities). I enjoyed my experience there overall.
After graduation, my girlfriend and I spent a month or two on the other side of Indiana in Terre Haute (she had an internship at ISU). I'd had some strange, sometimes threatening experiences in Richmond, but it was nothing compared to the atmosphere in Terre Haute; the level of meth abuse and abject poverty (I've never seen so many condemned houses) was pretty unbelievable.
