Heyoooo

I'm (hopefully) doing a year abroad next year and I'm wondering about the best place to go. (In terms of people, things to do, social life, etc etc). I'm pretty set on going somewhere in the south. Yes I am aware of rednecks/stupid southern people but the girl from Oklahoma that was in my halls last year was great and the 3 or so other southern people I have met have been great too. I know that 4 people don't represent half a country but I don't care too much about rednecks.

I'm thinking South Carolina, purely because of the bands I would get to see, other than that I have no idea.

What's the best southern state? advise me!

Thanks.

EDIT: Shit, less available unis than I though:


Bemidji State University Bemidji, MN
California State University, Long Beach Long Beach, CA
Central Connecticut State University New Britain, CT
Hawaii Pacific University Honolulu, HI
Kansas State University Manhattan, KS
University of New Mexico Albuquerque, NM
University of North Carolina Wilmington Wilmington, NC
University of Oklahoma Norman, OK
Oklahoma State University Stillwater, OK
San Jose State University San Jose, CA
Stony Brook University (SUNY) Stony Brook, NY - Wouldn't mind visiting NY, Don't wanna live there.
University of Toledo Toledo, OH
University of West Virginia Morgantown, WV
University of Wisconsin-Stout Menomonie, WI
University of Wisconsin-Whitewater Whitewater, WI

If you're looking at Kansas State, definately look at Kansas University. I've been to both towns several times and much prefer Lawrence to Manhattan. There is a real sense of community and spirit there. And from a music standpoint there is a fairly major venue right in the middle of Lawrence called The Grenada; there are constantly great shows coming through there. I saw Taking Back Sunday's TAYF 10 year anniversary show there last month and it was great.
