    The Best Cities thread got me thinking about cpllege towns. The places that if not for the school would probably be just a little more than a wide place in the road.

    Here are mine in no particular order:

    Athens -- okay, it's at the top for a reason
    State College
    Chapel Hill

    College Avenue in State College is a pretty cool Saturday night.

    What, no Bozeman or Terre Haute? :D

    Fuck Bozeman . . . damned bunch of murdering freaks!

    And the Haute isn't really a college town. There's a college there, but it doesn't dominate the town like the colleges in the towns I listed do.

    much to my chagrin, South Bend
    West Lafayette is dominated by Purdue, but it's not great

    I'm sure I'll think of some more

    I liked Athens, Ohio, Morgantown and (hate to admit it) Ann Arbor.

    Yup, I remembered some:
