For Residents of the Triangle, and maybe a few thinking about relocating. Maybe you were raised here and decided to stay. Or maybe College brung you here and the job climate and way of left kept you here. What's your story?

I was born in Fayetteville, NC in '83. But to escape the lack of jobs unless your employed by the military my family moved here in 1991 and I've been in the area ever since. Have lived in Clayton, Raleigh and now that I've finished college I think I want to buy a home or townhome to be exact on the North Raleigh/Wake Forest area. Great job climate and the way the area is growing is exciting. Basically, 14 yrs. :D

Born in High Point, moved to Raleigh when I started as a freshman at NCSU. Married a Raleigh girl and have been in the Triangle ever since. We've lived in Raleigh (several ITB apartments), Wake Forest, Chapel Hill (for grad school/law school), Durham and now Hillsborough.

Have had plenty of opportunity to move, but like it too much to leave.

Born Lynchburg Va. 1962

Moved to Raleigh 1966

Moved to North Raleigh 1967 (My Dad still lives there in Eastgate subdivision)

I grew up in North Raleigh as it was evolving. Seems like half the kids in class when I was growing up were from New York (relocated IBMers) Raleigh was a cool place to grow up!

Born in Charlotte in 1980.

Lived briefly in Wilkesboro, Greensboro, and a different location in Charlotte in late '82-early '83.

Lived in Greensboro from June '83 to when I left for college in August '98.

Came to Raleigh to attend school at NCSU in fall '98. Went back to Greensboro for summer '99, but I've been a permanent Raleigh resident since then. After graduation in May '02, I've worked at the university doing computer support. No plans to leave anytime soon...
