Denver's a good choice, except there's no university there. UC is many miles away from the city, in Boulder.
There is the University of Denver and the University of Colorado at Denver. DU is a smallish residential college; UCD is primarily a commuter college.

Denver is a nice place with low humidity. But I just cant see wanting to move away from Nantucket to go to some new city that you might dislike just because of a few days of high humidity? Dry weather wont buy you happiness, just make really sure to visit some potential destinations EXTENSIVELY before you make the decision to move. Ive known a few folks whove moved to drier regions, then moved back after a few years because the heat and dryness becomes just as annoying as humidity.

Hey Steve-o,
thanks for the advice, but i am currently living in Bulgaria (a country in Southeastern Europe). I live in Nantucket only in the summer time when the humidity reachest its highest point. I am alergic to the microrganisms created by the humidy, plus my doctor adviced me not to go back to Nantucket and to look for a low humid place.

I'm so glad to hear Denver is on the list. Trust me, I HATE humidity, thank goodness I live in AZ.

Yes, AZ doesn't have humidity, except for monsson season (july-aug), it can get muggy. It was worse in my opinion last year. I don't even remember humid days in the past, but the past 2 years I guess it seems worse, but not terrible.

I think UofA in Tucson is a good school, also NAU in Flagstaff. ASU is probably a good education as well. But we have some crime. Since Phx is a large city so there is crime, but there are definitely safer areas in the valley to live in that you won't be too concerned about being affected.

I am having the same problems due to humidity. Since I arrived in North Carolina, I have asthma and allergies. I never knew I was allergic to mould -- and so many people I meet here take medication! The pollution is bad, as well.
