I was messing with some Census data today and got curious about how much rent actually is in Athens, Georgia. The results are kinda sorta interesting. According to this page, the median rent in Athens is $774. What's hard to tell is whether UGA dorms are folded into these results, which would seriously skew the numbers.
Okay, but let's look at the fun stuff, the most expensive. According to the data, there are 1,440 households that pay more than $1,500 a month rent. That seems high, but then again we see apartments popping up all over town now that advertise "luxury living" for college students. I'm sorry, if you're in college, you should not be living luxuriously. You should be in a dump. In a student slum.
