From the posts on here, I guess its safe to say Tallahassee isn't a favorite college town.

State College is aptly nicknamed "Happy Valley."

I separate my favorites into urban and non-urban type college towns.

I will be visiting Madison this week, so I hope to add it to Ann Arbor and Champaign-Urbana.
I don't really care for East Lansing.

For non-urban type college 'towns,' I really like Charlottesville, Chapel Hill, and State College. Bloomington (Indiana) is a 'meh.'

Oxford, OH. Home to Miami University. A small and beautiful town.

Madison and Ann Arbor are great.

Toss in Athens, Ohio. Nice countryside, pretty town.

State College, Pa, no doubt! It's the absolute best college town out there! Ann Arbor, MI is also okay, but a little too big for me!

Have you visited Chapel Hill and Charlottesville? They feel just like State College to me.

I like 'college cities' better, like Columbus (OH), Pittsburgh, or Louisville. Schools in college towns are often party schools with unsafe campuses, even without urban crime.

There is a considerable amount of alarming incidents in Ann Arbor and Champaign, but if you are out and about at 2 AM, walking through a dark forest is usually not a good idea anywhere.
