I am looking to move to KC. I want to live in the suburbs, but no more than 45 minutes from the city, and want the suburb to be metropolitan area too. I want an area that is good for family, we have a 9 (boy), 6, 3, 3 (girls). I am also a college student, so I want to transfer to an university, what universities are in the area. My partner needs an area where she can cut hair, she is an licensed barber. I do want a fairly descent price to rent a 4 bedroom home for now also. Please help!

You'll probably have to be more specific as to what you can afford, what kind of neighborhood you are looking for. There are lots of good suburbs in the area, from the west and south (Johnson County) to the north (Northland) to the east (Lee's Summit).

You'll also have to be more specific as to what kind of university and program you are looking for. There are two major four year universities in the area - University of Kansas is in Lawrence, about 30 minutes west of KC. They also have a branch campus in suburban KC. There is also the University of Missouri-Kansas City located just south of the Plaza area in the heart of Kansas City. Both are good schools.

The two best small schools are probably Park University in Parkville, just outside Kansas City, and William Jewell in Liberty, just outside Kansas City.

Other good four year schools - Mid American Nazarene University, Avila College, Rockhurst University. There are also a number of branch campuses for schools like Webster College, University of Phoenix, and Central Michigan University. KC also has three good community colleges - the Metropolitan Community College (Longview, Penn Valley, etc.), Johnson County Community College and Kansas City Kansas Community College.

You can find hair-cutting jobs pretty much anywhere.

So if you want more guidance, please provide more info as to what you're looking for. And welcome to KC!
