Lauren commented on Living, Learning, Urban Environment.

Hey Dan!  I think there is a lot of overlap and room for collaboration with our ideas. Your drawings that show what the "micro campus" might look like do a great job of bringing the idea to life!  It's also nice that your university has an existing study abroad program that you can start to model the micro campus off of.   I think partnering with an existing university could be a key to the success of a new "campus" like this, especially if you want students to have access to federal financial aid.  When we initially came up with this idea we thought that a city with a low cost of living might be a great place to start a Living, Learning, Urban Environment because it would facilitate keeping the overall costs low.  For me, Saint Louis, MO came to mind because I lived there for 6 years and can envision who some of those community partners might be.
