Texas is not lacking in self-esteem. From huge barbecue platters to ten-gallon hats, this Southern state is loud, proud, and a wonderful place to indulge in university life. Texas is home to 36 different public universities, as well as a multitude of private colleges. The state has also played host to a women’s university since 1901, which also happens to be the largest nursing doctoral program in the nation.* With a 5.2% unemployment rate, chances are good you’ll find a start to your career after graduation. With diplomas in hand, many new graduates go on to work in hospitals, technology centers, and a variety of other fields. And they’re happy doing it, as Texas ranked 7th in the country for happiness at work.* Local job opportunities include Blue Bell Creameries, Bartlett Electric Cooperative, and the OpenSpirit Corporation.*
On your downtime, take in some great country music, go to a football game, or test your taste limits on the state’s countless hot sauces. In Dallas, the Lakewood Yacht Club is home to great lunch items and a full service bar attracting people of all kinds. Tap into your science side at the Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center. Go back in time for an education at the Alamo, Houston Museum of Natural Sciences, or the USS Lexington. Finally, join in with the “biggest” football state in the country and battle it out between Cowboys and Texans fans. You’ll be sure to make some big memories and a big impact here in the Lone Star State.*Bureau of Labor Statistics *Wikipedia, “List of colleges and universities in Texas”, “List of Companies based in Texas” *www.traveltex.com *www.alternet.org
