Terre Haute:
A Local Perspective

Terra Haute is a mid-sized city in Indiana that is by every definition of the term, a "college town." Although the town only has a population of 60,000 people, there are five institutes of higher education within the town. The largest of these is Indiana State University, which has in the neighborhood of 12,000 enrolled.

For a small city, Terre Haute has a remarkably diverse economy. One thing the small city has done amazingly well is to keep the manufacturing industry alive and well, when so many smaller American cities have lost their manufacturing sectors to overseas providers. The construction of the Vigo Country Industrial Park helped ensure a vibrant manufacturing industry in the city. In addition the local universities and colleges, and companies like Advics, Sony, and GE are also significant local employers.

Life in Terre Haute


The locals of Terre Haute seem to agree that while the bus system is constantly improving, the best way to get around is still by car. Currently, there is no bus on Sundays and the routes shut down by 6 PM. If planned expansions to serve entertainment oriented areas and the Universities with later hours go through, the bus may become the dominant mode of transportation.

Where to play

If you enjoy the standard mall shopping experience, then the Honey Creek Mall should be right up your alley. If you prefer local cuisines to chain restaurants, try the Taj Mahal for some authentic Indian food, or Sushi Umi for fantastic sushi. For good music on the weekends, head to the Fourth Quarter, and for the best beer selection in town you can't beat M. Moggers.
