Raleigh, NC Named in Top 10 Most Popular Cities for College Grads

We knew some of the finest colleges and universities are in North Carolina. We knew some of the best sports teams are in NC. However, we just found out that Raleigh was named in the "Top 10 Most Popular Cities for College Grads!

Raleigh, NC

This makes sense when you realize a mighty 42% of residents have a college degree. Now that's some education. The Triangle, Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill, NC, offers a large variety of great schools to chose from when it comes to Medical School or Grad School as well.

Austin, TX

For all the gaffe the South gets about education, 6 out of 10 of the Top Cities are in the Southeast specifically. Raleigh, North Carolina is one loved city.

Texas stood tall with three cities in the Top 5 including Austin, Dallas and Houston, numbers 1, 2, and 5, respectively. And that's respectfully too. What an educated state! Mountain Man will be proud, his paternal roots hale to Texas. His Grandparents both had Masters degrees.

Other Top 10 Cities included Portland, Seattle, Phoenix, Tampa and the lone California's Riverside.

No Northern cities were listed. Just sayin'! Even though all the educated folks are not just from the South, they know it is the best place to be.

What you? What's your Top City? Top City for Education? Or other interests?

Warmly, Carolina Mama

My son is attending college in NC and loves it! I don't think he'll ever return to the north again. In fact, he is trying to talk me into moving down there :)
