BEST US COLLEGE TOWNS #1

What Makes a Great College Town?

STUDY IN USA

A lot goes into the making of a great college town. It can be the scenery, a fun community, a big sports culture—or all of those, in some cases. Here are 10 great college towns across the country.

Amherst, Mass.

This small town in Western Massachusetts is home to three schools, including the main campus of the University of Massachusetts, and is just around the corner from two more. That makes for an interesting mix of people and great dining options.


Ann Arbor, Mich.

Fall is a big season for the University of Michigan Wolverines, whose football program has historically been one of the best in the nation and a big local draw. It only helps that Ann Arbor is walkable and easy on the eyes.


Athens, Ga.

The city is built around the University of Georgia, where the Bulldogs reign supreme. But football and tailgating aren’t all that Athens offers. There’s also great art and music: Both R.E.M. and the B-52s started in Athens and performed at venues like the 40 Watt Club.



Austin

Sure, it’s the fourth-largest city in Texas and the state’s capital, but Austin, the hometown of the University of Texas, has a small-town feel to it. Austin is as green as it gets, and Travel and Leisure magazine said it has some of the best people in the country.


Berkeley, Calif.

STUDY IN USA

University of California’s main campus is in this Bay Area town, a place that has almost become synonymous with the phrase “college town.” Berkeley features tons of art, film, music, and political activity, and it’s just a short drive across the bay to San Francisco.
