The south has some of the nicest folks I’ve ever met that are always willing to extend that southern hospitality that they are known for. So, considering a college or university in the south should be at the top of your list!
Southern states extend from Virginia to Texas and have some of he warmest states within he entire United States. The coastal southern states are known for hurricanes, which can occur from June to November, but mild winters can be a GREAT trade off if you are not a fan of colder temperatures.
Duke University, Vanderbilt University, Rice University, Emory University and University of Virginia are the top universities in the south. What an amazing selection of universities to choose from in the south!
