Columbus Recharges Plan to Encourage College Grads to Call the City Home

Central Ohio is home to more than 110,000 college students. An estimated two-thirds of them will leave the area after they graduate.

Higher education officials, cities and businesses are working together to try to reverse that trend and stop the so-called "brain drain."

Their efforts are coordinated by Todd Hoffman, president of Boston consulting firm Collegia. They specialize in finding ways to connect 18-to-24-year-old students with the cities where they study. Hoffman tells WOSU's Christina Morgan, students already think Columbus has a lot to offer

Collegia President Todd Hoffman was in Columbus recently for the official launch of the central Ohio effort to stop the brain drain. More information is available at "Easycolumbus.com".
