10 Excellent College Towns: Unigo List

First Posted: 12/16/10 03:43 PM ET   Updated: 05/25/11 07:20 PM ET

From our friends at Unigo: Many factors can sway your college decision, but location might just be the most important. We're not just talking about the weather, either. A school's location is the inherent culture surrounding the campus, and what that environment can offer its students. Don't worry though, if you are looking for great weather, we have that too! The perfect vista, town, or climate where you'll be truly happy is out there waiting for you. Here are ten of our favorites.

Boston University

Ye Olde Boston has plenty to offer, as the city is your playground. Like many of the schools on our list, the city is the campus. "You can go to Boston’s excellent Italian neighborhood in the North End," says one student. “Often, friends and I would go around the city to eat in ‘little Italy' up in the North End, catch a Red Sox game further south, or stay close and go to a local bar and shoot pool.” There are plenty of adventures, and you’re not limited because there are “good theaters, dancing and infatuating music.” BU’s most famous club would have to be the “Programming Council because it’s the biggest club on campus; definitely join if you get the chance! That's where students meet some cool kids that are progressive and open minded!” We agree with one student in particular, who simply said “Boston is not a college town, it’s a city.” A city you would be proud to call your home away from home.
