College Station Named by Money Magazine as Most Educated City in Texas

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Bryan-College Station TREC# 499368

College Station's very beginning highlights what happens when a community is built around a college, instead of a college being put in a town.  The railroad throught the area was completed in 1860 and in 1871 the site was chosen for A&M.  College Station didn't come into being until after the campus was opened in 1876, in 1884 the population was 350. 

Texas A&M's triple designation as a Land, Sea and Space Grant Institiution continues to bring more and more highly educated individuals into the area.  Ongoing projects by agencies such as NASA, the National Science Foundation, Office of Naval Research and the National Institute of Health are well funded and well staffed.  Money Magazine ranked College Station as the most educated city in the state of Texas and the 11th most educated city in the nation.  Research Valley is our new designation and name.  A fitting attribute!

Chris Tesh of College Station Texas. There is no question that having a decent college around your town will attract potential buyer's. Some believe that going after parents of college students and showing them that buying a condo or small home will make them money instead of renting. I think Chris that your proud and knowledge of your town is what we all have to do when we promote our area.

Sounds like a great town Chris. 

I have only been in Texas once, I drove to San Antonio along Rt10. It was HOT. It was HOT in the morning. It was HOT in the afternoon. It was HOT at night. It was HOT. Did I mention that it was HOT...LOL.  Is College Station as HOT as Huston and San Antonio, or would some one from the Northeast like me be able to handle it?
