The Savannah region also features a large number of students pursuing higher education within area colleges and universities.

Attracting and retaining top talent is also greatly enhanced thanks to the undeniable appeal of the region’s exceptional quality of life and comparatively low cost of living. Regionally, nationally and internationally, increasing numbers of businesses and talent are finding every reason to make Savannah home, and we’re actively taking steps today to make sure they always do.
