John Grable, the Athletic Association Endowed Professor within the College of Family and Consumer Sciences, is quoted in a piece on retirement published by Wallet Hub.

"Of course, cost of living factors are going to drive the decision for many retirees," Grable says in the article. "However, I think the most important factor is related to socialization and comfort level. You can think of it as 'shared values.' It is more important to find a community in which one shares values, cultural identity and social networks than it is to find the least expensive place to live."
