Dear Proud Moms & Dads,
Your son or daughter has just graduated from high school and is about to embark upon the next stage in their life -- attending college. Whether you currently live in Ohio, Oregon, Oslo, or just around the corner, you and your child are fortunate to have been accepted to a prestigious college or university in or around Washington D.C.
The D.C. area is a great place to spend four years studying and enjoying the college experience. There is so much to do in Washington D.C. and the surrounding area of Northern Virginia. Between the federal government, the military, contractors, law firms, and other private employers, many college students will spend their Summers here too in a job or internship.
While it may not be as much of a college town as Boston, some great universities and schools are in the D.C. area including:
George Mason University
George Washington University
Northern Virginia Community College
University of the District of Columbia
School starts soon & perhaps you are considering housing options for your son or daughter. Since they'll be here for the next four years (at least), you, as a parent, may want to weigh the option of investing in a property in D.C. or Northern Virginia. In both the long run and short run, this may be a better option than campus housing, especially if your son or daughter stays in the area after graduation.
Give me a buzz if you'd like to discuss this option for your matriculating student.
