Rochester ranks as No. 8 best college town

Rochester Business Journal
September 8, 2010

Rochester is ranked as the eighth best college town in a quantitative ranking released by the American Institute for Economic Research.

The rankings were chosen from an analysis of 222 metropolitan statistical areas with student populations of 15,000 or more and shows Rochester as the No. 8 mid-sized metropolitan area for college students. San Jose, Calif., took the top spot in the category.

The index goes beyond standard college and university rankings, which typically focus on the schools themselves, institute officials said. Instead, it analyzes the areas where the schools are located, including the overall academic environment, quality of life and professional opportunities. 

Rankings were based on criteria that include student concentration, student diversity, research capacity, degree attainment, cost of living and city accessibility.
