Delaware is barely noticeable on a U.S. map, but sometimes size doesn't matter when it comes to great education, activities and quality of life. Because the banking laws are so relaxed, most major banks have set up headquarters around the state, opening lots of business positions for recent graduates. Other major employers are following the lead, including DuPont, Vulcan Corporation, Wilmington Trust, LabWare, and Pusey & Jones. Popular majors for those planning to stay in Delaware include science & engineering, business & manufacturing, and accounting. and with an unemployment rate lower than the national average, you're sure to find a great start to your new career after graduation.
Now when small towns get going, it's usually a good time. So imagine the celebrations you'll find in the nation's smallest state. Delaware nightlife is best at the Starboard in Dewey and Dogfish Head. When the seasons start changing, check out the Dover Days Festival in spring. In summer, the Firefly Music Festival brings listeners from all over the East Coast. In the autumn you can participate in the Punkin Chunkin World Championship, while the winter months include tours of the du Pont mansions all decked out for the holidays and of course no one living in Delaware ever complains about the tax-free shopping. So, if business or science is your thing and you prefer your education with a side of seasonal adventures, plan on Delaware for your next stop.*Wikipedia, "Delaware" * www.visitdelaware.com/
