CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Graduating college is filled with plenty of exciting challenges, including finding a job, leasing an apartment and even deciding where to live.

And those making the transition may want to set their eyes on Cincinnati.

Apartments.com weighed the most important factors facing new grads including employment opportunities, salary, affordability, age and the city's singles scene, to compile the 7th annual "Top 10 Best Cities for Recent College Graduates" list.

Cincinnati came in at No. 6 with the lowest average monthly rent of all 10 cities on the list at $707 for a one-bedroom apartment. In addition, the Queen City is also home to several large employers, such as Procter & Gamble, Macy's and Kroger, creating many opportunities for young professionals to live well.

Columbus narrowly gets the nod over Cincinnati at No. 5. Ohio's capital scored points for its singles scene with high percentages of male-only and female-only households.
