Alamosa, CO? Not only no, heck no!

Not because it wouldn't be the same, but because it hasn't changed a lick in 41 years.

I haven't left the general area, but my college town is the only one in the area that is healthy, and has considerably improved since I graduated.

I liked it but probably not...too conservative for the 21st century (Rush Limbaugh's home town) but it sold me on small town living. I moved from a city to a small town in 1976 and stayed until 2013.

Moving somewhere to relive old memories is a bad idea, all around. One of the worst decisions I ever made was moving back to my hometown in 2012. At the time I did it, one of the factors was nostalgia for simpler days. However, moving back to a place associated with a previous time in life won't bring back the old days. You have to consider whether its somewhere you would want to live today, regardless of how fondly you remember it from a past season of your life. You can't "Redo those memories." First and foremost, many if not most of your college friends probably won't be there anymore.
