    Lots of theme in this one - Nice! Only nit I'd pick as lifelong midwesterner is that more people would probably call it CHAMPAIGN-URBANA vs. URBANA-CHAMPAIGN. Anyone in the 217 would probably have better sense for this one, though. Still...fun solve!

      Alum here! You're right, although, the school is actually called University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign... so I'd say this answer is totally fine. Nearly everybody says Champaign-Urbana, though... or sometimes even Chambana... but I don't think anybody would really raise an eyebrow at saying Urbana-Champaign.

        If it works for an alum, it works for me! Haha, maybe I was just piqued because I had CHAMPAIGN-URBANA in there for far too long before figuring it out.
