Dear On Hiatus in Switzerland,
In reference to question 17289, don't feel limited to stay near Basel. Because the country is so small, you can get around really easily with the train system. A few hours and you can get to Geneva (Red Cross, United Nations, etc.), Montreux (world-famous jazz festival), the Matterhorn, Zolikofen (Swiss Temple) and even into France, Italy, Germany, Austria, or Lichtenstein!
