Columbus Ranked 8th Best City for College Grads
Are you a Millennial? Have you graduated from college? Then Columbus wants you to live here!
According to a new study from Realtor.com, Columbus continues to score highly in the metrics that define what makes a city great for a new college graduate. The low median age of the city means that there are plenty of Millennial peers to keep the city social and active, while the professional job market remains strong and cost of living remains relatively low.
“However idealistic, most of today’s bright-eyed young’uns are all too aware of an economy that remains challenging for entry-level workers, despite big gains over the last few years,” states the Realtor.com report. “Roughly half of recent grads have jobs that aren’t related to their degrees, according to Accenture, a management consulting company. That means they’re more likely to follow their wallets to whichever metro holds the best job prospects.”
This new list was topped by Fargo, North Dakota, but also included a lot of the usual suspects like Austin (#3), Madison (#4) and Oklahoma City (#9).
