Because it has so many state colleges to choose from, North Carolina could be called "the Ohio of the South". Seems like Ohio has quite a few state sponsored universites itself.

The mountains are in western NC.

The poster asked what I considered Mid-Atlantic. I'm sorry so many posters are offended by responses to what others think of NC but that is the question of the thread. Most of us don't consider NC southern.

'Most' doesn't even come close.

You are 'most' definitely in the minority.

Really huh? Well you would be wrong again. "Most" not only agree that North Carolina is in the south, but all educated people "know" that North Carolina is in the south.

Are you kidding me? Mighty potent crack you're smoking there.

Back to the original question. North Carolina is a great place.

Who is this "us" you speak of? Your group of friends..your family? It certainly isn't most of the residents of NC who definitely know that we live in a southern state.

I have seen some call North Carolina Mid-Atlantic (Mid-Atlantic states are often straddling borders - VA is Southern and also often referred to as Mid-Alantic, New York is Northern and also often referred to as Mid-Atlantic) but I've never heard of anyone not calling it Southern. So by certain people's logic, Virginia and West Virginia have to be Northern as well if NC is?

Only someone from the southern tip of Mississippi wouldn't call North Carolina a southern state. Only joking, but in all seriousness, it's definitely ignorant to call NC anything but southern. I'm sorry, but it's getting ridiculous. Sure, you'll have some enclave transplant communities around the Research Triangle or Charlotte, no way of getting around that. However, does that mean the whole southern identity of the ENTIRE state of North Carolina has vanished? I guess there isn't a North Carolina outside the Triangle or Charlotte to some people!
