slides: Worcester Named Top City In US For College Grads

Saturday, May 25, 2013

 

Everyone knows Worcester has a great college scene, and a new ranking says that the city is also one of the Best Small Cities in the US for college graduates.

Credit Donkey, a website dedicated to "Life After College," named the "Best Small Cities for College Grads" this week, and Worcester ranked #7 in the nation. Looking at metropolitan areas with populations between 400,000 and 1 million, Credit Donkey "considered three factors that affect the attractiveness of a location for a new college graduate: median income, the local wage premium for a college degree, and cost of living."

With a median Income of $41,260, a "College Premium" of  56.1%, and a cost of living index of 91.8, Worcester did best because of its relatively low cost of living. The best city for grads? Oxnard-Thousand Oaks-Ventura, CA, followed by Bridgeport-Stamford-Norwalk, CT at #2, Bakersfield-Delano, CA at #3, Poughkeepsie-Newburgh-Middletown, NY at #4, and Palm Bay-Melbourne-Titusville, FL at #5.
