The city was ranked among the 10 best places to live by U.S. News in recent years, and for good reason. Auburn University, one of the largest schools in the southeast, is located here, and keeps the local economy supplied with a steady flow of not only students, but also sports fans who come from far and wide to view events at the school's stadium. The university itself is Auburn, Alabama's largest employer, which currently claims over 8,500 individuals as employees. There is also a sizable business field for high-tech parts manufacturing as well as research firms that exist thanks to the interest in these subjects that the school creates. There are also plenty of job opportunities at the nearby Kia Motors and Hyundai manufacturing plants.
