NWA Voted Best Place to Live After College

Sounds backwards right? NWA has historically been associated with its bustling college town vibes and unique nightlife; however, a new report by Porch has determined Northwest Arkansas is the best midsize metro to live when making the move post-grad.

  • The study ranked metro areas based on median income, unemployment rates, number of employer firms, concentration of recent graduates, median rent, and cost of living for recent graduates. NWA excelled all categories. Most notable was the 1.8% unemployment rate for recent graduates.

  • NWA landed the No. 1 spot in the midsize cohort (350,000 to 999,999 residents) of metro areas.
