State College is Ranked 3rd Best College Town, Probably Because of Its Culture

[PSULive] UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — State College, home to Penn State’s University Park campus, has been ranked third-best among college towns for college students by the American Institute for Economic Research (AIER).

The rankings appeared in AIER’s recently released 2012-13 College Destinations Index (CDI), an annual quantitative ranking of the nation’s 75 best towns and cities to live in if you’re a college student. The index takes into consideration such aspects as academic environment, quality of life and professional opportunity.

The CDI considers College Towns as those with a residential population under 250,000. Ithaca, N.Y., and Ames, Iowa, came in first and second, respectively. 

Should be first, but we’ll take it.
