It is a diverse community, with both large Hispanic & Asian communities, and is home to Mary of the Lake Seminary, in which, the teen pregnancy rate is low, & there has never been a gang fight.
Much to the chagrin of teenagers who are recently licensed to drive, Mundelein is not considered a big "Party Town", and the police take exception when, said teens, take the local speed limit as nothing more than a suggestion. On the bright side, there's such a large retail tax base, that, like Vernon Hills, there is no annual vehicle tax.
The South East corner of Mundelein boasts a great industrial section, (Home to Medline), with factories that employ thousands.
Mundelein is 20-30% Hispanic.
DUDE! That cop pulled me over for a TOTALLY bullshit reason! Sure! He followed me around the same three blocks twice, but we were confused after smoking that joint!
"Great!...bowling, or donuts?"
Residents of the town flock to cooler places for entertainment, since Mundelein is primarily made up of Starbucks and Walgreens, with the occasional SuperTarget or Baskin Donuts. Popular nicknames for the town include Mundeslime, Fundelein, and Little Mexico.
