  1. Interesting; Eastman doesn't list a Champaign site...

    1. From the Eastman website:

      Analytical Chemist-00003132
      This position is located in Champaign, IL.

    2. I went to grad school at UIUC, and that's news to me too. If you like bars full of puking undergrads, stores that sell nothing but T-shirts and bongs, and money-grubbing local cops who do nothing but give out parking tickets, you'll love living in Champaign!
