As Colleges Grow, So Do Cities Colleges are looking beyond the classroom these days, spurring construction booms that spill off campus and breathe life into surrounding neighborhoods. On the next Sound of Ideas, we'll talk about why developers are betting on campuses like the University of Akron and Cleveland State and how partnerships with colleges are creating pockets of growth. Tuesday at 9:00, right here on 90.3
