A town in rural Illinois about 65 miles outside of Chicago. Has Northern Illinois University in the center. Otherwise you got a Walmart and a small Bestbuy. There is lots of corn. And a high school that had its power get knocked out 7 times in 2007-2008 and has had a couple of gang fights and multiple attempts at arson. There isn't much besides that. There was a school shooting at NIU in 2008. Besides the shootings the only claims of fame are the invention of barbed wire in DeKalb and supermodel Cindy Crawford.
