Find Out Where Iowa's College Towns Rank Nationally


Wallethub has gone and ranked America's college cities and towns. We have some pretty significant college towns in Iowa. And we know that we always rank high on the drunk list. In looking at this list, maybe the reason people get drunk in Iowa is less about the amount of colleges in the area, but more about the boredom?

Iowa's highest ranking college town is Ames, which came in #59 on the list. Is Iowa City not a very pleasant place to be? Iowa City came in #190 on the list! Perhaps, someone at Wallethub is a Cyclones fan.

Even Des Moines came in higher on the list at #164.

The survey compares cities by affordability, social and economic opportunities, crime rate, among other aspects.

The top College City is Austin, Texas.
