    Columbus residents enjoy a full array of social, cultural and academic activities. Downtown Columbus is home to theaters hosting major concerts, Broadway productions, symphony, ballet, opera, and jazz. It is also home to the Columbus Museum of Art, COSI (a nationally renowned science museum), the Columbus Zoo & Aquarium and a National Hockey League team - the Columbus Blue Jackets. Columbus and the surrounding suburbs are home to approximately 1.6 million people. Central Ohio is known for the diversity of its people, its neighborhoods and its quality of life. Columbus is full of exciting professional and social opportunities waiting to be explored!

    All of this, coupled with one of the lowest costs of living among large cities, makes Columbus one of the best cities to live in the United States.
