Denver, Colo.

< BACK to CDI TOOL
The Mile-High City provides college students with unparalleled beauty and solid economic conditions, balanced with an attractive quality of life and great demographics. Newcomers will find a strong prospective labor market and reasonable housing costs. However, earnings are on the low end for the midsize metros. Not surprisingly, commuters in this Rocky Mountain region depend on cars. Those seeking a location that puts a premium on education will find that over half of Denver’s population holds a BA.
