A true college town is a special place. It’s more than just a home to a particular college or university. There’s a bond between the two–without the support of the town, there’d be no university, and without the impact of the university, there wouldn’t be much in the way of a town. Townspeople, students, and faculty alike share in the one-of-a-kind social melting pot that makes their home unique.
Livability recently ranked the top-10 college towns, consulting the Princeton Review and factoring in criteria like population, ratio of students to non-students, and the university’s economic impact on the town.
