If Reno wants to become a college town, it could look at Chico, Calif., and Fort Collins, Colo., to see how it’s done. “What’s special about Fort Collins is the old downtown area has remained really central to the social life of the whole community, and I think that lends an old-timey feeling that really makes it unique,” said Tom Milligan, vice president of External Relations at Colorado State University.
