The more surprising factor, they are some of the most expensive places to live! Researchers believe, work is the main factor drawing these individuals to these areas. If the price of living is high, there must be an abundance of opportunity and available work. The hard part is staying above water. Many college students are fearing the price of living to soon surpass the income that they are bringing in. Time to learn how to budget and master this thing called “adulting”
