DENVER (KDVR) — College can be a stressful time, especially when it comes to exams and balancing other responsibilities, like jobs and social life.

Preply said it scraped all tweets from 150 locations from Aug. 1, 2022 through Oct. 31, 2022 and then analyzed the tweets and narrowed the list of cities down to college towns that the student body accounted for at least 30% of the total population of the town.
