State College: America’s 8th-most Bro-friendly City

Good news, Penn State bros: State College is the 8th-most bro-friendly city in the country. This dubious honor was conferred upon State College by Estately.com, a real-estate search engine that (apparently) also conducts studies — highly-scientific, I’m sure — on the bro-friendliness of cities.

Using metrics such as demographics (read: percentage concentration of white males), the size of the local college’s student body, and the NCAA ranking of the local college’s lacrosse team, Estately compiled a list of the “18 Best U.S. Cities for Bros“, on which State College ranks #8 — just ahead of #10 Durham, North Carolina and #9 Austin, Texas, the homes of Duke University and the University of Texas, respectively.

Surprisingly enough, State College’s 8th-ranked bro-friendliness also beats out the likes of #14 bro-town Boston — home of Rob Gronkowski, Estately’s “patron saint of bros” — and even Jersey Shore‘s Seaside Heights, the #12 bro-town on Estately’s list.

Estately rates State College as a “prime habitat for a large population of bromosapiens,” citing the following reasons:

  1. Penn State’s #2 party school ranking by the Daily Beast
  2. Penn State’s #2 douchiest college ranking by GQ
  3. Penn State’s 11th-ranked lacrosse team
  4. The mere existence of Penn State’s croquet team (@PSUClubCroquet)

Word. And a tip of the snapback to you, Penn State bros — go shotgun a Natty in celebration, or something.
