Those 80,000 online students at Liberty University go a long way to boosting the "college town" vibe of Lynchburg!

Lynchburg seems like a mighty pleasant place to live. Not sure I would lump it in with Tuscaloosa, Ann Arbor and Boulder as "college towns." (I don't exactly think of Boston as a "college town" either - so maybe the authors are thinking of something entirely different!)

I's surprised that Lynchburg made the list and not Williamsburg (William & Mary), Charlottesville (VT) and Richmond with a number of colleges.

Virginia Tech isn't in Charlottesville; UVA is. VT is in Blacksburg.

Your math is bad. Only residential students counted.
