Land area doesn't really mean anything, but since you brought it up:

Tyler land area - 54.3 square miles
Nacogdoches area - 27.01 square miles, or half of Tyler's land area.
I hate to pile on but SFA has 12,000 students and I bet 10,000 of them live in the city limits and they are most definitely counted during the census. So you are talking about 22,000 people that live there that are from there and have an actual connection with the place. Majority of those students are from Houston and Dallas and will be long gone after they graduate.

I am from Lufkin but raised in Nac and basically I see why Lufkin has a low percentage college grads lmao.
Lufkin has a jr college but I know that half of Nac goes there and also alot of those students SFA don't reside in Nac alot commute from cities like Tyler,Longview,Shreveport,Houston,Beaumount and of course Lufkin.
Please again please do your research before you start talking!

Most go to SFA and never go back to Nac. I don't know 1 person who graduated from SFA and resided in Nac.

Kind of hard to decipher this but I think you are saying many SFA students commute to Nacogdoches daily. So what are these thousands of new apartments being built for that you mention often?

This site says that 43% of SFA students live on campus or about 5,000 students. So of the remaining 7,000 students that live off campus wouldn't it be safe to assume that at least 4,000 live in Nac in various rent houses and apartments? So about 9,000 of Nac's 32,000 residents are college students? All I'm trying to say is that 1/3 of Nac's population call it Nac-a-nowhere and have no connection with the community and will be gone as soon as they get a diploma.

in the past year alone, i've had 10 coworkers from out of state, heck even out of the US, move in to tyler for medical jobs. and most of them are under 40. and that's a hard fact, not just some lie.

and im not saying that because i love tyler. i would love to move back to austin any chance i get, but im putting that out to show you what it's really like. not just claiming something without hard facts.
