When deciding where to go to college, there are a lot of things to consider – things like cost, environment and opportunities.

WalletHub recently ranked college cities throughout the country to find out which cities are best for students.

The rankings were decided based on what was most important to incoming freshman – the school’s reputation for social activities, visiting the campus and most importantly the school’s academic success.

Wondering how Salt Lake City did?

Here is what WalletHub said in its article:

With it’s youth-oriented environment and the opportunities available, Salt Lake City came in as the 18th best college city in America.

From the Chamber’s perspective, we completely understand: Salt Lake City offers economic vitality, lower cost-of-living, night-life and so much more.

Happy New Year!

As we reminisce over the past year, we think of all the accomplishments we’ve had, partnerships we made and relationships built together as a business community.

We hope you enjoyed the last year, but we also hope you are just as excited to look towards the future and the many possibilities it will bring.

As a business association, we’d also like to recognize the wonderful people in this community. Without each of you, Utah would not achieve the many successes that our state enjoys. The people in our state truly make it the best place to live, work and play.

We look forward to finding more innovative and effective ways to serve each of our members.

If you’re not a Chamber member, now is a great time to consider looking at ways we can help you.

In the meantime, may you create and keep your resolutions.

Be safe and have Happy New Year!
