I saw this article on WRAL.com today and had to pass it along!

College Grads Flocking To Raleigh, Wake County (WRAL.com)

The article really says it all and reinforces my decision to come to the area almost 6 years ago (wow, I can’t believe it’s been that long!).

We have one of the best educated populations in the country and the changes that are occurring here every day certainly show that. I am proud to call Raleigh home!

As a side note, I have to admit it’s really ironic that my hometown (Elmira, NY) newspaper regularly posts articles with the exact opposite headline – that all college grads are leaving the area.

Perhaps Elmira should look to Raleigh as an example of what it needs to do to prevent its young people from taking part in a mass exodus. Short answer: jobs, cultural activities, diversity, and lower taxes.
