Columbia and St. Louis included in the Top 10 college towns and cities in America


The listomaniacs at Wallet Hub have released another ranking, one that puts Columbia and STL in the Top 10: Best college cities and towns.

Number crunchers looked at 23 areas — such as quality of education and cost of living — and then mashed it up to rank cities on a combination of academic, social and economic opportunities.

When all cities, regardless of population, were ranked, Columbia finished 10th overall. In the “small-city” category, Columbia came in at No. 6.

In the “cities” category, metropolitan areas with more than 300,000 people, STL came in at No. 7.
