The Best Top 10 States for College Students Might Surprise You

I went to college and both times I went to SUNY schools. The state university system worked for me in the 80’s and it didn’t do much for my parents as I was not any kind of scholarship student. I had some friends who left New York for college. They went as far as New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and even Massachusetts.

There was always a small part of me that wondered if I should have left New York and went to out-of-state school. I don’t know about back in the 80’s but nowadays, it would be a bad idea that a recent poll by found New York to be the second best state to attend college.

Even though New York came in at number two, it still isn’t perfect. It got high marks for entertainment and access to a diverse lifestyle but unfortunately, we are the most expensive when it comes to rooms. Over $10,000 dollars compared to Florida’s $6,330. And in case you’re wondering where Hawaii landed, it’s number 20. The number one slot went to California.

Why is New York ranked so highly for being a good college state?

So what could be some of the reasons why people choose New York or even the Hudson Valley for college education? After all, we have a lot of colleges. I must say that the four-season draw is the season. I also think that our local ecotourism scene makes our area very attractive to young people who are active on weekends.

We also have a great mix of colleges, some with cool small towns that go with them. State University in New Paltz is the perfect example of a college in a fun city. West Point speaks for itself with quality education along with its reputation and service to our nation. Along with their legacy reputation, there is Vassar College and Marist College in Puffkeepsie, NY. And you can’t forget Bard College, located in northern Duchess County, with its rich background for the arts.

The Hudson Valley is a camping destination for many people, including those of us who live locally. It’s a great way to celebrate summer vacation near home every weekend. Many places offer seasonal rates for you to save money on your stay. You pull the trailer up for the summer and park it for the season which is usually from May to October. We found Camp 7 Resorts to offer a summer full of family fun and exciting activities.
