Bulldogs On The Cuyahoga

Some friends of mine in Pittsburgh are laying the groundwork for bringing large number of Yale undergrads to Pittsburgh for summer internships, hoping to entice them into locating here after they graduate. The program would be modeled on something similar in Cleveland. This has to be a good thing: competition should make everyone work harder. Maybe local alumni of other colleges could do the same thing with their students?

Since it seems to be an annual Pittsburgh ritual to bemoan the departure of graduating Pittsburgh students for graduate school and careers in other cities, let me repeat: Go away! Students who have gone to college here should graduate and move away. Our challenge isn't to keep them where they think they don't want to be. Our challenge is to persuade them (and, especially, students who went to college elsewhere) to come back to Pittsburgh later.
