    I like how they say central Ohio has “dozens” of colleges and universities. I can’t even think of one dozen.

    OSU, OU, CSCC, CCAD, Capital, Denison, Ohio Wesleyan, Franklin, Ohio Dominican, Hondros, Columbus Culinary, Otterbein, various law, medicine, nursing…

    “Dozens” does seem a stretch though.

    Central Michigan University has a campus here in Columbus too. We have been in the Columbus area for 40 years now.

    The ‘”regional” area for higher ed does include OWU, Denison and others. And outside of Boston metro, you’d be hard pushed to find a higher total population of college/university students in the nation. It’s a serious strength that needs to be promoted and leveraged. CBS got that right.

    DRU,

    How does the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area compare?

    I cannot quickly find the reference to the point I alluded to, which currently makes it dubious.

    In the same vein it might be of interest to look at the American Institute for Economic Research’s College Destination’s Index:
    https://engr.ku.edu/graduate/pdfs/aierreport.PDF

    It’s not the same metric, but the data (esp. the student concentration data) will allow some comparisons for how Columbus stacks up. In the AIER report we are further down from second, but it does give an idea of how much a strength higher education potentially lends to Columbus. OSU arguably bolsters the stats, but the OWU’s, Denison’s and Capital’s of the area make it diversified and dense.
