    I live just a few miles/minutes from Davidson College, and about 30 minutes from UNCC and Queens University.

    I'm in Aggieland! But there's actually a business here that does this (emergencies and fun stuff). Don't need it for my daughter since I live here, but kind of cool concept.

    Yes, fortunately I live near a college. Though the campus isn't so big. But overall the scenario and environment is so good.

    quick driving distance to U of R, VCU and Randolph Macon (20-30 min), close enough to get to UVA or most of the DC schools within 2 hours.

    @cloudysmom. DD18 will be going to CofC this fall! Her older sister lives in Goose Creek but we are several states away. We’ll be there in June for orientation and if it’s ok, I may ask some advice about places. She is so excited!

    I’m in Omaha, NE -close to Creighton, UNO, and can get to Lincoln in 45 min. Oldest DD is s Lincoln grad if there are any questions. I’m new here but a middle school special education teacher. I am reliable and can handle the unexpected. Lol

    We're in St. George, Utah, 10 mins. from Dixie State University and about 50 mins. away from Southern Utah University.

    I live near and work at a college in Southern CA. Of course my daughter doesn't want to go here and it's one of the most competitive CSUs in the state. She applied anyway. I've worked here 20 years and my daughter couldn't get in.

    I work at Columbia. I live in Manhattan and can as well do NYU, the New School, Fordham, and any other college in the city.

    I live next to George Mason University and within easy driving distance of all the universities in the Northern Virginia, DC and Maryland areas, basically metropolitan Washington, DC. So, for search engines, Georgetown, George Washington, UVA Northern Virginia Campus, University of Maryland, etc.

    Yes - I live in Phoenix - near ASU, GCU and of course HQ of U of Phx. So many strong community colleges in Phoenix that it nearly always makes sense to enroll in CC before university.
