Logan Kirkland/Mississippi State University / Money Talks News

Starkville, Mississippi, isn’t a college-town household name, but maybe it should be. It’s home to Mississippi State University, the largest university in the state.

Rent here for a two-bedroom apartment is an affordable $800.

Starkville doesn’t score high for such big-city perks as food trucks or cafes, as you’d expect from a smaller population. But if you’re looking for a small-town Southern college experience, Starkville should be on your list.
