Moving from Houston to College? Learn About Where You're Headed.



Moving cities for college is an exciting transition. Not only are you entering a new stage of your life, where you’ll meet new friends for life and absorb the knowledge and skills you need to be successful in your career, but you’re also getting out of your hometown and discovering the culture of a new city. No matter which U.S. college you’re enrolled in, there will be lots to explore in your new city.


You’ll first want to determine what the climate is in your new city. What’s the temperature like in the summer and winter? If you’re moving north from Houston, be ready for frigid and snowy winters. It’ll also be good to acquaint yourself with the culture of your new home—both the day-to-day culture and the events and celebrations in the city. Learn the societal expectations of the city, as well as the best places to hang out and the dates to mark on your calendar. Discover the best restaurants, attractions, and little-known secrets.


The best way to do all of the above is by asking the real experts, local people. CrowdsourcedExplorer.com is an online community where people share information and advice about their hometowns, from where to get the best food, to weather, to local customs and social norms. By checking out what residents of your future city have to say, you can make the most of your move to college from Houston.
