In the past, many young college graduates headed to big cities like New York, Boston and San Francisco in search of opportunities for work and fun.
Now, however, as more graduates have student debt to pay, many are flocking to up-and-coming cities like Pittsburgh and our hometown of Buffalo, which offer a great combination of good nightlife and a low cost of living, the New York Times reports.
When it comes to choosing a college major, we’re advocates for doing what you love and picking the area in which you’re most interested.
If you’re passionate about what you’re studying, you’re more likely to succeed both during and after college.
