A study ranked college towns and Ohio State fans won’t be happy

·2 min read

There’s something nostalgic about college towns. And everyone is probably partial to the one they called home for four years and takes offense to anyone who might make disparaging remarks about that home away from home.

Well, the people from a real estate group called Clever released their rankings of college towns, and let’s just say that Ohio State fans may not be happy with the results. They make the final rankings based on three main criteria: affordability, social life and culture, and college quality.

Columbus didn’t fare so well in their rankings falling in at No. 96 overall and No. 13 out of 14 Big Ten schools. The only Big Ten college town ranked below Ohio’s capital city was Lincoln, Nebraska. I imagine Cornhusker fans have something to say about their ranking as well.

Many people on Twitter blasted the list as invalid after seeing West Lafayette and Purdue listed as No. 3 on the list and ranking Madison, Wisconsin as middle of the pack. We’ve heard nothing but good things about Madison as a top-tier college town.

To add insult to injury, Ann Arbor was listed at No. 1 on the list which won’t sit well with Buckeye fans either. Most in the comment section had plenty to say about Michigan being ranked so high as well and at the time of this writing, not one of those comments from Ohio State fans.

We love Columbus and feel like the people at Clever have the capital city ranked way too low. What say you Buckeye fans? Where should Columbus land on this list?
