California: The Golden State  

If California were a country, it would have the eighth largest economy in the world. Over 200 languages are spoken. It has more colleges and universities than any other state, and its community college system is the largest network of higher education in the country.

If you go to a college or university in California, you can access the beach, the mountains, and the desert. There are hundreds of attractions for you to visit, including Hollywood, Disneyland, Universal Studios, the San Diego Zoo and the Golden Gate Bridge.

The food is as diverse as the people of California. You can find food from almost every country in the world. And don’t forget that this is the home state for the world-famous In-N-Out Burger! For the budget-conscious student, there are popular food trucks that serve affordable and delicious meals on-the-go.

And by the way, the weather is fabulous.
