College-life, finger-licking cuisines, hike-and-bike trails, and live music cause many people to flock to Austin and never leave. The 11th most populous city in the U.S. and the 4th most populous city in the state of Texas is home to 15 private 4-year institutions. With 39 schools in all, nearly 45% of Austinites have a bachelor's degree or higher. Companies like IBM Corp, AT&T, Seton Family of Hospitals, and Luminex are settled in the area making Austin a promising city for technology, pharmaceutical, and biotechnology students.
Ranked No. 1 on Forbes' 2014 ranking of the fastest-growing cities in the U.S, relocating seems like a no brainer. Its 3,000+ local eats, swimming holes, music festivals –including the SXSW and the Austin City Limits Music Festival— and of course, good ole American football keep the college students applying. With more than 250 live music venues, you can expect to hear music everywhere in Austin – from the grocery stores to the city council meetings. Austin also has some really unique tourist attractions such as their Cathedral of Junk and Baylor Street Art Wall. Pack a bag and a big appetite, and get ready for some fun in the LoneStar State.*National Center for Education Statistics *forbes.com *www.austintexas.org/visit/music-scene/ *U.S. Census *www.taglineguru.com
