When it comes to the title of best college town in America, Ithaca continues to reign supreme.

The American Institute for Economic Research released its latest College Destination Index, which compares college towns across the country on numerous categories, Business Insider reports. Ithaca was named the best college town in America after the institute ranked small college cities–all with populations under 250,000–based on student life, culture, economic health and opportunity. The institute also gave Ithaca the best college town crown in 2013, 2012 and 2011.

The Central New York city is home to Cornell University and Ithaca College.
