Mickey Mouse isn’t the only one who’s found a bright future down south. With 12 public universities, 28 community and state colleges, and multiple private and vocational schools, Florida is a popular state for higher learning.* Common college majors here in the Sunshine State include film production, theater and visual arts, animation and various forms of computer technology. Many students opt to stay post-graduation, thanks to the many companies headquartered here: ScribeAmerica, US Sugar Corporation, Intelliflix and Rhino Video Games. And no individual income tax, your money goes even further.
Florida is a large state promising plenty of diversity and amusement.* Of course, the most famous are Walt Disney World and the beaches of Key West, but there are plenty more affordable and convenient ways to spend your weekends. Dry Tortugas National Park features an exhilarating boat ride and spectacular views of Florida’s coastline. No Name Pub in Big Pine Key is a local bar covered floor to ceiling in signed dollar bills from customers. Churchill’s in Miami is another hot spot featuring regular live music performances and plenty of drinks to go around. And when all else fails, take a ride down the A1A, listening to Jimmy Buffett. If you fancy sunshine and warm weather and want a new experience with your education, Florida is your next home.*http://www.florida-air.org/flacol.htm *http://www.myflorida.com
