Believe it or not, America has the best colleges in the world. It's been proven by data (and surveys) that the U.S. educational system is of the highest quality
It's actually not even close and Louisiana is home to a handful of them.
While we could debate which colleges within the are the 'best,' that's not the goal of this post.
Instead, ride along with us as we determine which college towns in Louisiana are the best.
You know, the type of places where there's energy and stimulation, but the type of place you can walk around at night. The happiest, chillest, most downright fun places where you can send your kids off to college where you won't break the bank, or worry about their well being.
Without further ado, here are the best college towns in Louisiana for 2021.
While some of these may not seem like a 'real' college town per se, when you look at the numbers, it's hard to argue against.
And for those who live in Kenner, Thibodaux and Lake Charles - we tip our hats to you and we'll schedule a tour for next week. You can see where Kenner ranks in terms of the best college town in America.

To crunch our data on Louisiana's best college towns, we had to first decide which qualities (or rankings) make sense to use in the data, and then crunch the numbers for our rankings.
First off, we firmly decided that only cities with a 4 year college should make the cut -- so there has to be at least one college granting bachelors degrees in town.
You might be surprised to hear that there are only 14 places in Louisiana with an institution of higher learning with that criteria.
We ranked each city across each of the criteria, with one being the best.
We rolled up the individual scores into the category and ranked them again based on the category.
Finally, we took the average rank across each category, with the city posting the lowest overall score being crowned the winner of the title "Best College Town In Louisiana For 2021".
And it looks like Kenner placed Summa Cum Laude.
If you're looking for the best college towns in Louisiana, you came to the right place.
These places all have great college sports programs, tons of stuff to do, and are great places to raise a family.
