A collage town? Would you settle for a decoupage town?

(har-dee-har-har)

But seriously: Asheville and Boone are great suggestions based on your criteria. I'd also suggest most of New England (Vermont, especially) and most of the Pacific Northwest. There are dozens of towns that meet your criteria in those regions.

Outside of the Southeast, but I'd look into Ashland, OR, Durango, CO, and Bellingham, WA.

It's too bad Asheville doesn't have a better university there. It would be a great university town.

A Midwest college town that is underrated is Bloomington, Indiana (home of the IU). It's not surrounded by cornfields, but thousands of square miles of green forested hills. There are tons of hiking trails nearby and there's a huge lake east of town for fishing and camping.
