YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Youngstown was named the most affordable college town in Ohio.

According to Great College Deals, Youngstown topped the list of 20 most affordable college towns in Ohio.

Youngstown’s cost of living is 28-percent lower than the national average, and 16-percent lower than the Ohio average, which makes it easier for students to find good places to live off-campus.

The report talks about Youngstown’s small-town feel, unique history, lush green spaces and historic buildings. It also highlights the “walkable” downtown, theater, and low entertainment costs.

GCD looked at more than 130 cities in Ohio. Toledo, Nelsonville, Akron, and Columbus round out the top five.
