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.
