Choosing the right college can be a difficult decision for young adults, their parents, and anyone thinking of heading back to school for their first, second or third degree. If you’re headed to college to further bolster your resume and you have a love of coastal living, a school near the water could be an easy choice for you.
Western Washington University
Just 90 minutes from Seattle, Bellingham, is home to Western Washington University. The evergreen covered campus has beautiful red brick paths, plus views of both Mount Baker and Bellingham Bay. It’s understandable why WWU boasts that students can ski in the morning and sail in the afternoon.
University of North Carolina – Wilmington
On the other side of the country, the Atlantic Ocean and Wrightsville beach are a favorite destination for students at UNC-Wilmington. Despite the pull of the always beautiful Outer Banks of North Carolina, students remain focused on their studies. UNC-Wilmington has the second highest graduation rate of any public university in the state.
New College of Florida
On the shore of the Gulf of Mexico, students at New College of Florida walk around barefoot and relax in hammocks between classes. This may sound like a college movie comedy, but this Sarasota school is actually a highly ranked public liberal arts college. The campus also features three waterfront mansions from the gilded age.
