Monument-filled AND college-kid friendly!
A new report by the American Institute for Economic Research ranked Washington D.C. as the fourth best metropolitan area to attend college, according to the Washington Post.
The report highlighted the 75 best college locations in America, subdividing the list by city size. D.C. was grouped into the major metropolitan category, and finished behind only New York, San Francisco and Boston.
The rankings were determined based on 12 factors, including the number of college students per every 1,000 residents and the cost of living. D.C. particularly excelled in the student to resident ratio category, with 81 students for every 1,000 residents. We also had the lowest unemployment rate and the second-highest average income of the major metropolitan areas in the study.
