In a recently released ranking of the "50 Great Affordable College Towns in the US", Monroe comes in at number 33 in the nation. Monroe is the only city in Louisiana to be ranked. ULM President Nick Bruno says Monroe offers great support to the university.

"It provides opportunities for students seeking a good college experience at a high value to look at ULM from that perspective," said Bruno.

The list was complied based on the cost of living index published by the Council for Community and Economic Research.

Bruno says in these days of rising tuition costs, students consider things like cost of food, housing, utilities and transportation when choosing where they want to attend college.

"They will begin to looks at lists such as this one and consider campuses and communities that are on that list," said Bruno.

He says this is great exposure for ULM, "And certainly for the city of Monroe to help us attract students from beyond our borders."
