Locationwise, it's got just about everything you need. It's about 10 minutes to bus stop, ruler foods, big lots, and dollar general, busey bank, so you can get most things you need close by. However, the traffic switch crossing the Springfield rd is broken, so you have to run across the road if you want to get there. I seriously wish they'd fix that. It's far from most restaurants, so if you want to eat out, you have to take a bus or car. It's a decent distance from both UIUC and Parkland College, around 10-20 min by car. As for its facilities... I haven't really tried the stuff at the office, but there's a health room, a pool, a tv room, and stuff.
