Champaign, Illinois, is a medium-sized town in the heart of Illinois; nearby communities include Springfield, Decatur, Danville, and Urbana. Champaign is best known for being the home of the University of Illinois. It is also the home of a thriving community that is bolstered by the agriculture, finance, technology, real estate, and manufacturing sectors. Due to those sectors, as well as the renewable resource of university students, the economy remains robust, and the banking sector in Champaign continues to thrive.
