Thomas, Michael K.
Connection: The Journal of the New England Board of Higher Education, v18 n1 p20-23 Sum 2003
Despite increased competition from other states, New England remains a very popular education destination for both undergraduate and graduate students. As with commerce, New England has a "balance of trade," with students flowing in and out of the region. As a region, New England enjoys a notable "positive" net migration of first-year college students. The migration patterns of first-time freshmen are important to New England. They tell a story about the preferences and decision-making of traditional college-age students and their parents in terms of cost, geography and types of institutions. In this article, the author takes a closer look at the migration patterns among New England's college freshmen and discusses its implications to the region's economy. (Contains 4 figures.)
