Poll: Does Tysons Need a University?

(Updated at 12:50 p.m.) “How do you make a ‘sense of place’ in Tysons?” is a question developers, Visit Fairfax and locals are trying to answer. One proposal is to add a university.

Currently, Stratford University has a Falls Church location. Outside of the Tysons area, prospective students have options, like George Mason University.

During two panels at a Bisnow event on Jan. 16, Christopher Auth, the divisional vice president of PS Business Parks, said that he would like to see a university in Tysons — an idea that several other real estate professionals agreed with.

Public and private universities can add more jobs to offering opportunities for educational advancement for the local workforce.

Do you think Tysons could benefit from a university? Let us know below.
