Greensboro, North Carolina

Nationally recognized as one of the best places to live in the U.S., and the third largest city in the state (population 269,666), Greensboro offers the advantages of a large city plus the warmth of Southern hospitality. The Triad metropolitan area, which includes Winston-Salem and High Point, has more than a million residents. In addition to a dynamic arts and entertainment scene, the Triad is home to ten other colleges and universities and leading national companies that offer a wealth of internship and employment opportunities.

Greensboro's two research universities, UNCG and North Carolina A & T State University, have recently established a joint research campus, Gateway University Research Park. According to former UNCG Chancellor Patricia A. Sullivan, "The Gateway University Research Park provides the universities with the opportunity to expand our research work, attract and retain talent and stimulate partnerships with business and industry. I see the park as a magnet for the Triad to attract knowledge-intensive companies to commercialize the work of university researchers."

Located at the crossroads of I-85 and I-40, Greensboro is easy to reach by interstate highway, Amtrak service, or the Piedmont Triad International Airport. Greensboro's ideal climate and location - two hours from the mountains and three hours from the beach - are perfect for year-round outdoor activities.
