The realization that my youngest daughter, Raquel was attending college and was going to be out of my sight for four years was heart wrenching (she was my baby girl).  I knew I had to let her spread her wings yet, that does not come without its concerns. 

Although she decided to attend a private college in-state, student housing was not an option.  I was on a mission to find her safe and affordable living accommodations.  “Not so easy”, we visited dozens of apartment communities/neighborhoods which made it was extremely stressful and time-consuming. 

My personal college experience with Raquel became my passion as I asked myself, what if I could help other families avoid experiencing the same issues we did? 

That is why I created CollegeVida.  A TRUSTED, one-stop-shop platform for students and families with their college housing needs.
