Folks elsewhere may disagree, but those of us who call Texas home consider that adage to be self-evident. We’re just honest, right?
That’s why being considered the best place for anything in Texas means you’re pretty special.
In recent years, the Bryan-College Station area has received plenty of national attention for our thriving economy, outstanding schools and overall high quality of life. Having the best university in the country in our front yard doesn’t hurt, either.
Texas A&M today announced that Simple Dollar, an online publication that offers financial guidance, has named College Station as the sixth most affordable college town in the nation.
“It’s such a privilege to be home to a world-class university,” College Station Mayor Nancy Berry said. “Our low tax rate makes College Station highly attractive, but it’s really more than that. People are moving here for our public schools, healthcare, green spaces, new industry and, increasingly, to retire in the same place where they spent the best years of their lives — at Texas A&M.”
