LUBBOCK - For the first time, Lubbock placed on the American Institute for Economic Research’s (AIER) College Destinations Index. Lubbock placed 11th in the ranking of best small city college destinations for the 2012-13 academic year.

The list includes the top 75 towns and cities in the United States for college students, based on a larger evaluation of the 227 U.S. metropolitan statistical areas with student populations of 15,000 or more.

In creating the index, a dozen factors are evaluated using the most current data available from the Census Bureau, Bureau of Labor Statistics, Department of Housing and Urban Development, Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System, National Science Foundation and Small Business Administration to survey each community’s overall academic and cultural environment, quality of life and employment opportunities in the area.
