When it comes to thinkin’, the greener the gooder.

The Loveliest Village on the Plains is the smartest city in the state of Alabama, and the 44th smartest city in the country according to a recent study by Lumosity, a San Francisco-based company that tests people on problem solving and attention and thought processing speed and stuff.

Tuscaloosa’s nationwide rank? 164th.

Lumosity ain’t the first to recognize Auburn’s superior collective genius. A 2011 study had Auburn also topping the state in terms of “brainpower  index.”
