Keep Smiling Tallahassee!

I've always been told to figure where I want to live, and then to apply to jobs accordingly. While I don't think this luxury will be available with graduation approaching, this article caught my eye.

Yesterday's USA Today reported a massive study conducted over the United States. The topic? What cities across the U.S. are the happiest and healthiest based on supply and region. The results surprised many by concluded the states located in the south were less content than states in western regions. The study reviewed multiple factors including jobs, finances, physical health, emotional state of mind, and communities. Sounded pretty thorough to me. If we had high paying jobs, great physical health/ medical care, and lived in a city that promoted stable mindsets and a great community feel-we'd be set, right? We do. While Boulder, CO takes the cake, Tallahassee ranks highly at #30 out of the 162 cities reviewed. Keep it up, Tallahassee!

Other cities that ranked highly were Holland-Grand Haven, MI, Honolulu, HI, Provo-Orem, UT, Santa Rosa-Petaluma, CA, Santa Barbara-Santa Maria-Goleta, CA, San Jose-Sunnyvale-Santa Clara, CA, Washington-Arlington-Alexandria, DC-VA-MD-WV, Ogden-Clearfield, UT, Oxnard-Thousand Oaks-Ventura, CA, taking top ten highest overall ranking. Any of these cities of interest ad majors?

Keep Smiling Tallahassee!
