Lexington has been named the 16th best city for college students by the American Institute for Economic Research as part of its College Destinations Index 2012.
The Destination's Index evaluates more than 200 college towns that have more than 15,000 college students on academic environment, quality of life, and professional opportunities. Lexington was ranked in the 'small metro' index. It includes towns that have less than one million people. Ann Arbor Michigan came in first in the category.
This is Lexington's second big honor in a week. Last week, the city was ranked 25th best place to live in the country.
