The fest starts today with on-campus "road shows," where museum, theater, and sports-team reps will talk to students. Afterward, the undergrads are invited to Jacobs Field to watch the Tribe take on Minnesota. Tomorrow, the students take a trip to the Ohio Theatre to see A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. On Saturday, they check out the Sparx Gallery Hop. "Northeast Ohio is a great place to live, learn, and work," says Zinn. "The lightbulb comes on, and students get it."
