What makes a great college town? The educational experiences that you are exposed to, the career opportunities you can take advantage of post-academic life, sports and student life on campus are all significant factors but what about all of the other aspects of a vibrant college town? Music, festivals, food, art and a compelling educated community are things that make a college town feel like home.
Tradition, values, fun and family, are aspects of great communities. Add the energy from local college campuses and you have the ingredients for an amazing college town.
Accomplished writer Kara Meyer Robinson has researched and evaluated hundreds of college towns all over the US in creating this list. These top 50 cities offer college youth and energy while also providing a wonderful place to call home for life.
Whether it is a long-term town to call home after your college days have ended, or a stop on your travel journey, our list has something for everyone.
In creating the list, Kara says she "considered things like how much outdoor space is there? Does it have streets lined with boutiques and cafés? Is it pedestrian-friendly? What's the culture like? Can you pop into a museum or get tickets to the theater? Is there nightlife? What's the general vibe?"
