For college graduates, Charleston is one of the top places to be in America, according to a survey conducted by Mylife.com.

The Holy City ranked near the top among 189 midsized American cities in the survey based on a total score of multiple categories that included the percentage of residents between 25-34 years of age, the percentage of people that age with a bachelor's degree or higher, the average price of rent, the percentage of unemployment and the number of bars and restaurants per capita, according to the site.
