The South Roanoke Circle neighborhood newsletter had an article entitled "The Stanley Avenue 20-Somethings" (on page 3) by Lindsey Bieging a 23-year-old Hollins graduate and native of Alexandria, VA. She mentions the wonderful time she and two other friends have had living in Roanoke after graduation. This example is a snapshot of how many other young professionals feel about living in Roanoke.
The local colleges and universities are still an untapped resource for talent, especially when a majority of the 60,000 college students are not natives of the region.
More stroies like these can assist us in communicating to college students that there are jobs available. things to do, and an enjoyable lifestyle in Roanoke.
Thanks to Caroline (a young professional who moved backed to Roanoke from South Carolina) for sharing the article.
