SPRINGFIELD, Mo- Springfield has made it to the top of another rank chart.
Springfield was ranked as the best college town in Missouri by Reviews.org.
The company said they wanted to find the best places for students to find jobs, get around town easily, and keep their cost of living down to a minimum.
Springfield ranked first for cost of living.
Here is what the company said about their methodology on the study, “We gathered a list of college towns and narrowed that list down to cities with fewer than 250K* residents and we kept in mind that the metro areas surrounding the smaller towns would also include the student population. Using data from United States Census Bureau and the Bureau of Labor Statistics, we analyzed overall population, student population, rental costs, college education rates, transportation access, unemployment rates, and bar availability. From there, we narrowed it down further by weighing the cost of living, unemployment rates for 20-24-year-olds, and easy access to the city.”
