AUSTIN - The Austin area — home to the University of Texas, St. Edwards University, Austin Community College, Concordia University Texas and others — was ranked the No. 2 mid-sized metro college destination in America by a new report from the American Institute of Economic Research.

The report, the 2014 edition of its annual College Destinations Index, ranked the top 75 metro areas in the U.S. for college students.

“These cities offer opportunity and a high quality of life not just for students, but for residents as well,” said Luke Delorme, the researcher behind the study. “People considering a new place to live or open a business would do well to consider these locations.”

The College Destinations Index ranks locales by the number of college students per capita, the cost of housing for a two-bedroom apartment, walkability, culture, economic health and research and development dollars available per student.
