With several college application deadlines coming up, students are planning their visits to many campuses across America. If you're wanting to get your education in Texas, the Lonestar State offers up several towns and cities that made the list, including College Station and Abilene.
In order to find the cities and towns that offer the best or worst combination of academic, social and economic environments, WalletHub ranked 280 U.S. cities based on 23 key metrics. Some examples from the data set include the quality of higher education, crime rates and the cost of living.
While College Station is one of the best college cities in the nation at number 5, our little town of Abilene didn't fair so well, coming in at number 195. At least Abilene wasn't the worst on the list. That honor goes to Laredo, Texas.
