Here are Six Reasons Why You Should Move to Northeast Kansas
Are you looking for a place to move to where you can enjoy high levels of income, pay low costs for living, and bask in arts and culture during weekends? Look no further than Northeast Kansas. Here are the top reasons why you should move here:
High Median Income and Low Cost of Living
Topeka, Kansas' state capital, is a diverse and vibrant economic hub with low real estate costs. The median household income in Topeka is $58,524 while the cost of living is 13% lower than the national average. Property prices are almost half the national average at $96,551.
Decreasing Crime Rates
Crime rates in Topeka began decreasing in the early 2000s. Researchers have cited Topeka as a unique case as it had a relatively small crime rate for a big city. Reports cite close coordination between citizens, the police, and media as the reason for the drop in crime rates.
Excellent and Diverse Education
Topeka is among the 50 cities that lead in Education. Washburn University's School of Law was the first to have a law clinic where students actively practice the legal profession. The University of Kansas in Lawrence County is known for its excellent research facilities, multicultural learning, and diverse student population.
Northeast Kansas is also home to Haskell Indian Nations University, the country's sole tribal university. All Haskell students hail from various federally-recognized Native American tribes from all over the country.
University students may consider Northeast Kansas for its vibrant and exciting college town of Manhattan. This is where most college students live, so it has a very active and fun social scene.
Arts and Culture
Lawrence County is Kansas' arts and culture hub. Here you can find the Lawrence Arts Center, a 40,000 square-foot facility where you can view art exhibits, watch performances and enroll in classes. The Dole Institute of Politics, Haskell Cultural Center and Museum, and the Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site are also worth checking out.
Topeka was a bastion of the free-state movement, making it one of the Midwest's most important cities. It was also in Topeka where racial segregation in schools was declared unconstitutional in the 1950s, making it one of the Civil Rights Movement's landmarks.
