TELL North Carolinians you’re heading to the Research Triangle, and they’ll probably ask “Which school are you visiting?” Yet the close-knit cities of Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill are marked by more than college bars and hoops fans.
To be honest, it's hard to read past the phrase "close-knit cities," especially after reading, say, the comments in the N&O following the US News top ten story earlier this week.
But kudos to the Scrap Exchange for making the list.
. . . adding, as my friend RH reminds me, there is another college in Durham not mentioned by the NY Times.
