Research from Ohio State University is contrary to a recent presentation about millennials in connection with ISLE 2040. 

Researchers found that while college graduates moved to cities with “smart” industries in the 1990s, that pattern has changed post-2000. Today, college graduates are flocking to bigger cities with a lot of diverse job opportunities, according to findings published in “Smart cities and attracting knowledge workers: which cities attract high-educated workers in the 21st century?” by Michael R. Betz, Mark D. Partridge and Belal Fallah.
