Micah Kotch at NYU-Poly explained to us how critical universities are to fostering the nation’s best tech scenes.

In this month’s Podcast, the editors talk about the challenges of hanging on to university students after they graduate.

Topics covered in the episode:

  • Wharton students talk about whether they will stay in Philadelphia.
  • Cady Zuvich, the editor of the University of Delaware’s student newspaper, The Review, talks about her opinion of Delaware as a place for young people after college.
  • In Baltimore, Megan Miller, the director of the career development office at the Maryland Institute College of Art, or MICA, describes how jobs after art school aren’t what they used to be, from Under Armour to Amtrak.
  • Events Manager Kate Leshko describes the Start. Stay. Grow. Summit in Philadelphia — which co-organized.
