A new study from SmartAsset ranks Oklahoma City among the top 15 cities for 2021 college graduates.
To produce a definitive ranking, the study considered 10 individual metrics across three categories: Jobs, Affordability and Fun. Among the metrics the study accounted for were unemployment rates, college graduate earnings, job listings, cost of living and dining and entertainment options.
One of the key takeaways from the study revealed that college grads have more job opportunities away from the coasts. Cities across the Midwest and Southeastern portions of the United States dominated the top 15, also scoring well for affordability and fun.
