Raleigh offers great educational opportunities.
In addition to housing North Carolina State University—one of the three powerhouse universities that give the Triangle its name—Raleigh is home to 10 traditional universities and colleges. In addition, you’ll find top-notch schools for a variety of trades as well as technical colleges.
Not planning on attending classes any time soon? You’ll still benefit from what higher education institutions offer the community. College towns usually enjoy:
- Higher real estate values—especially for investors in rental properties
- Innovation from university research dollars and the nation’s top minds
- Greater artistic and community development
- High-quality employment opportunities
- A highly skilled workforce
Raleigh’s community is second to none.
Raleigh’s community is supportive, kind, and welcoming. This city was recently ranked as one of the “most neighborly” cities in the country—the only one in the South to earn a spot. We welcome visitors and new residents alike, and we’ll be happy to give directions, share a meal, and help anyone in need. Downtown Raleigh’s unofficial welcome sign is a rainbow mural declaring, “All are welcome,” and we mean it. With the city’s growth has come an increase in diversity, and Raleigh has active inclusivity initiatives to make sure every person feels at home.
