If he's almost to his mid 20s and single, he should live around other single people in their mid 20s. Students in College Station and Lubbock generally don't stick around once they graduate.
...it's about getting a job, let alone in an area with decent salaries vs cost of living. It's not easy getting a job as a teacher right now in any area due to schools operating on freezes more or less having budget constraints placed upon them. A job in a Texas college town is better than no job.

If that were his true intent he wouldn't have came on here asking for advice as where to live because he wouldn't be that picky.

Plus you can't guarantee a job in a Texas college town comparative to other places.
