|Jan. 21-22: 4th Annual Back Stage Pass in Hattiesburg|
The Hub City of Mississippi has been getting a lot of attention. Named a Top 10 Best College Town in 2014 by Livability.com, Hattiesburg is home to Historic Downtown, Midtown, the University of Southern Mississippi and William Carey University.
The ranking criteria for the Top 10 selection included: student population, percentage of 24- to 35-year-olds, affordable housing, walkability, education sector jobs, educational attainment, and entertainment venues.
“Combine a great college with a highly livable city and you've got something to cheer for,” according to Livability experts.
Historic Downtown Hattiesburg has a lot to do with achieving this top 10 ranking.
