Welcome to Virginia! 

Just south of Washington, D.C., Virginia is centrally located on the East Coast and has a little bit of everything – the rolling Blue Ridge Mountains and the stunning Shenandoah Valley, the glistening Atlantic Ocean and the less widely known gem of the Eastern Shore, the political hub and the museums and memorials of nearby District of Columbia, bustling Virginia Beach and the natural beauty of the Chesapeake Bay, pristine lakes and beautiful national parks, big cities and charming small towns, delicious food and lively music festivals. What’s more, its friendly people, rich history, and quality educational institutions make it a terrific place both to live and to study.

Once again, Virginia comes out as the top state for higher education. The average college in Virginia has a student-to-faculty ratio of fewer than 11 students to one teacher, the second-best rate in the country. Virginia schools rank fifth for average 20-year return on investment for their students. (more information at https://smartasset.com/checking-account/top-states-for-higher-education-2019).
