Combining city textures and college town sensibilities, Baton Rouge really has a nice blend of characteristics. While not a huge city, Baton Rouge is big enough to offer a healthy dose of diversion, opportunity, and amenity to its residents and to the thousands of college students who descend on it every fall. Its size and diversity makes Baton Rouge more than just a college town, but removing the students from the equation would undeniably change Baton Rouge’s character and quality of life.
Not only is Baton Rouge a city with many college students, but it also retains many recent graduates who are looking to start new careers, creating a decent-sized population of people who are young, single, educated, and upwardly-mobile. This makes it a good choice for other relocating single professionals. Here, these young singles will find many others like themselves, with opportunities for friendships, socializing, romance, and fun.
The overall education level of Baton Rouge citizens is substantially higher than the typical US community, as 32.73% of adults in Baton Rouge have at least a bachelor's degree, and the average American community has 21.84%.
