University, Tech/Education Level, and Region Play

Hi everyone,


First time poster, long time SimCity lurker here. My question is about people's results aftering building a university. I get that it auto-accelerates the tech level in the university's city to 3, but it doesn't seem to have an impact on tech and education levels on other cities in my region. First off, I only get a few (less than 100 most days) "regional" students. I also am not seeing any tech level increases in industry in other cities, even after I let it run for a couple of simcity days. For the non-univeristy cities in my region, it's like the university doesn't even exist. I thought the point was that individual cities would be impacted and improved by what happens in the region around them, but it does not seem to be the case with a university right now.


I have public transportation (buses, train, and ferry) connections between the two cities, and my population isn't high enough yet that traffic is the issue with people not being able to make it to class. The first time I tried this, I didn't plop the univeristy until traffic had become an issue, so I started a new city with the intention that I'd shoot for a university quickly and flip between two cities fairly frequently to building them out together and have everyone end up at a high education and tech level. But that isn't working because no one from the non-university city seems to want to go to college! Slackers! Anyone know what I'm doing wrong, or is this another thing about the game that is not yet working as intended?
