College graduates are coming to Raleigh and Wake County for jobs. Many of the 10,000 students from schools in the Triangle choose to stay in the area after graduation -- and this is part of the reason Wake County stands out nationwide.
For a decade now U.S. city planners have obsessively pursued college graduates, adopting policies to make their cities more like dense hot spots such as New York, to which the "brains" allegedly flock.
However, this analysis--no matter how widely accepted in the media--is grossly oversimplified, even misleading. Lately, college graduates, for the most part, are heading not to big cities on the coasts, but to smaller, less dense and quite often Sun Belt cities.
Where are the college graduates heading? To Raleigh and other smaller sunbelt cities. It turns out that none of the top 10 cities gaining colleges grads were large Northeastern cities, they were largely Southern or Midwestern. Raleigh being in the top 10.
