Urbana, the lesser known beauty of CU

By Mark Capapas, Photo Editor

Urbana is sometimes seen as the estranged half of C-U. From an outside perspective, it can be seen as lonely, far and quiet. This is, of course, from the viewpoint of someone living on the west side of the region. The people who reside in Urbana know the journey is worth the destination. The docile sounds of the trees, calm evenings and personality driven local spots are just some of the many relics that Urbana has to offer. These images are some of the places and sights I have seen throughout my year of living there.
