Is Your Alma Mater In One Of The Top 10 College Towns in America?


What do the top ten college towns in the US all have in common? Nobody saw them as contenders. A race full of dark horses.

Movoto Real Estate claims it has found the formula for selecting the best college towns in America. The criteria they used includes total amenities, quality of life, crime and tax rates, unemployment and weather. As a starting point this study assumed that liberal arts schools are surrounded by better environments. You know, that serve culture rather than ten cent wings and dollar pitchers. Ranking culture over party scene. #PGP.

Here is the top ten:

1. Hanover, NH (Dartmouth)
2. Bryn Mawr, PA
3. Charlottesville, VA (UVA)
4. Ann Arbor, MI (Michigan)
5. Blacksburg, VA (Virginia Tech)
6. Princeton, NJ
7. Swarthmore, PA
8. Iowa City, IA (Iowa)
9. Waltham, MA (Middlesex University)
10. Burlington, VT (Vermont)
