ABOUT THE BRYAN/COLLEGE STATION METROPOLITAN AREA: The Bryan/College Station metro area (“Aggieland”) has a population of over 250,000, and is among the 15 fastest growing metro areas in the United States, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Residents enjoy a vibrant economy that Forbes and WalletHub rank as one of the best areas in the United States for job growth and start-up companies. Residents also enjoy a low cost of living (including no state income tax), short commute times, and a vast network of parks (nearly 100), walking paths, greenspaces, and golf courses. Moreover, College Station is recognized as having some of the strongest public schools in Texas, as well as a very low crime rate and excellent health care.

Culturally, the Bryan/College Station area has many different offerings in music, theatre, art, and athletics. In particular, Texas A&M frequently hosts Broadway theatre productions as well as other internationally famous music and dance shows. Other local groups, such as the Arts Council of Brazos Valley, the Brazos Valley Symphony Orchestra, the Theatre Company of BCS, and the Brazos Valley Chorale offer additional cultural opportunities, as do events such as the Texas Arts and Music Festival, the Spirit of Texas Festival, and “First Fridays” in downtown Bryan.
