I will be graduating the community college this spring and will be taking some time off to save up money. But soon after my little break, I will be applying to university. I don't have anything against California, but I've been living here all my life, and I want a change. With that said...I have looked into Oregon and Colorado.
Those states all seem like good candidates as they all have the university I'm looking to go to. But, I've never been to them so I'm asking for your help!
Specifically, I'm looking into:
This is what I'd like to know:
Crime rates, cost of living, weather, ect. Anything will help, I just need more information about these states. I don't mind the rain, I can stand the cold, but I want somewhere not super expensive and safe.
Thank you for all and any help!
