Variations of this idea have been raised and what I am essentially suggesting is creating an exchange program between schools located in big cities such as New York, Chicago, Dallas, and Miami. Many students come to USC looking for the big city experience and although USC is located just outside of the downtown area, it still offers students a look at the big city of LA. But what if students could gain experiences in multiple big cities throughout the USA? I think it would be beneficial to create partnerships between universities to allow students to see more than one big city throughout their time in college. Because many huge corporations have headquarters in more than one big city, perhaps some sort of internship track could also be linked to the exchange program. Many students look for a study abroad program, but they are not always prepared for the culture shock they experience. Offering an exchange program within the borders of the United States that still lets students travel to new places would certainly be an attractive proposition. I like some of the ideas raised regarding domestic study programs and I think combining some of the aspects of those ideas would make for a very intriguing program.
