Nobody mentioned an obvious one: NYC/metro area and Miami/South Florida.... in fact, Miami is often times referred to as the 6th borough.

state college is practically the geographic mid point of PA, both N/S and E/W


the DC area is however loaded with PSU grads, as is NYC and obviously Philly


In terms of big land grant schools PSU has a large representation in all the NE cities


PSU also has a surprisingly large number of grads in the LA area


Its grads are much more NE and WC focused than other big ten schools; PSU (MD, and Rutgers) are the Midwest outliers for the big ten

I see Michigan and perhaps even OSU stuff as much here in the DMV as I see PSU stuff. Other traditional Big Ten schools are definitely less common though. Michigan has a ton of students from the East Coast, but this is also simply a place with a high density of college grads.



The schools - aside from the schools actually based in the DMV incl Maryland - that I would say definitely stand out as having more of a 'local' following are VT, UVA and WVU. A *lot* of Mountaineers around the D.C. area. It surprised me when I got here.

WVU gets a lot of east coast students; a better school than most realize and good engineering program


OSU and MI make sense though when I lived there I saw more PSU (then again I went to PSU so maybe noted it more)




https://www.wsj.com/graphics/where-g...after-college/




The above would suggest more PSU than MI or OSU in DC (Actually as much OSU and MI in Philly as in DC)


actually a sort of interesting tool above


I know MI is popular destination on the east coast and one of if not the best large land grant schools in the country (PSU and OSU are no slouches either but MI def has a little more cache)




As an aside, for WVU Pittsburgh (top not surprisingly as WVU is pretty close to the burgh) followed by NYC, Philly then DC are the top destinations for grads from WVU

Surprised no one has mentioned Toronto-Buffalo yet.

The cities' media markets overlap with Buffalo and Toronto sharing the dial and customers (and advertisers), there is even a shared TV station (PBS), Canadians regularly fill the malls in Buffalo, many Canadians support Buffalo sports teams (the Bills played TO games several years ago), the AAA Buffalo Bisons are the Blue Jays' farm team, there are millions of Canadians using low cost travel through Buffalo airport, Americans take day trips to Toronto and have summer cottages in Canada, and of course Niagara Falls is a shared resource. The Canadian flag is seen paired with the US flag in front of Buffalo City Hall and many other places around town. Tim Horton's is the largest donut chain in Buffalo (Horton was even a Buffalo Sabre when he died), and it is not uncommon to see poutine in the Buffalo area.

In some renderings Buffalo-Niagara Falls NY is even included as part of the Golden Horseshoe mega-region, with the Queen Elizabeth Way (QEW) highway between Buffalo and Toronto forming the spine. On a clear day one can see both Buffalo and Toronto skylines from the hotels and towers of Niagara Falls.
