1. A place where parrents will pay too much money for houses so their kids can go to preppy schools which the kid's are ashamed to go to because although they envy the lives of the kids on the TV show "The O.C" they are ashamed to be called rich.
2. A place that college students terribly miss when they are away at college, but when the students come home they soon find there are less parties and places to drink than at college and end up calling everyone they know so they can all meet up together and do nothing.
1. "God! This school is so getto!" "I hate my school" "Why is River Hill so rich! Rich bastards!"

2. college away message: "missing HoCo"
but when we come home: "There's nothing to do in Columbia"

The epitome of all that is good and just in America. White picket fences, unpretentious rich people, real family life (unlike the ostentatious MoCo lifestyle), crabs on a summer Sunday, keggers in the woods, Route 40, and the lack of boarding schools.
MoCo kids honestly think that by talking about how "rich" they are that they will magically be wealthy; HoCo kids don't need to talk about it or have someone else affirm their opulence- they know they've got it waiting in the fund.

the abbreviation for Howard County, Maryland, as posed by the residents themselves. A much better place then MOCO, Montgomery County Maryland

a great county in Maryland near BalCo and MoCo. it's a awesome area to live in and also a great place to raise kids. Huge houses with picket fences, unpretentious rich people, real family life, Columbia mall, and a relaxed atmosphere.

Currently according to the latest US Census info, with an average household income around $85,500 making it the richest county in the state of Maryland, surpassing MoCo, and one of the 20 wealthiest counties in the US.
MoCo kid: haha screw you HoCo kid I'm richer than you

One of the most affluent counties in America, Howard County is conveniently placed between Washington, D.C. and Baltimore. The citizens of Howard County are generally wealthy, although tend to choose not to speak about money at all. High schools students from HoCo, who graduate with either an excellent public education from some of the top schools in the nation rich with AP classes, tend to attend upper echelon private colleges or the University of Maryland, where they are either part of sports teams or the more exclusive sororities and fraternities.

June and May mark the beginning of the pool season in Howard County. During the months of July and August, HoCo migrates to the Outer Banks of North Carolina and Hilton Head in order to "get away," and then inevitably everyone runs into each other again.

Howard County is the American Dream. The people are beautiful and it is always named amongst Sports Illustrated most active cities in America. The park and recreational systems are always brimming with athletic families. It is well known for it's lacrosse breeding ground, especially Mount Hebron Women's Lacrosse and Hero's Lacrosse.

Everyone wants to live the unpretentious, yet very comfortable HoCo lifestyle.
HoCo Boy: Where are you going for the Fourth of July?
HoCo Boy 2: The lakefront, duh, everyone and their mom will be there.
