HEAR HERE: A POP-UP RADIO PROJECT

Hear Here: Meet Ben Nelson

Ben Nelson shared his story with Hear Here: A Pop-Up Radio project at the San Francisco Main library.

If you're a San Francisco resident, there is a good chance you went to college. Over 40 percent of the residents are college graduates, making San Francisco one of the most educated cities in the country.

He shared his plan for a new kind of Ivy League university, which he first thought of as a college student.
