Does anyone have anything to say about TUSCULUM COLLEGE in TN.?
13th-Nov-2007 08:03 pm - A few requests...
Has anyone been to:

University of New Haven
Portland State University
University of Texas - Austin

They've recently had presentations at my school and while everything looks good on paper... well, you know. What the reps say isn't exactly the "real college experience".

Thanks in advance!

Wowie, what a relief to stumble upon this great community that allows me to get an objective opinion about schools I'm unable to visit due to distance.

Anyway, I've only gone on a couple college visits thus far, but I'd like to provide my description on one particular visit I went on last summer, University of San Francisco.

Ohhh, and I'll be visiting University of Oregon [in Eugene] and University of Portland later this week, so expect reviews on those schools [except I hope they won't be as long!].

Has anyone visited/attended the New England Institute of Art? I would really like to go there for their Audio and Media Technology degree, but lately I've heard a few bad things about the school itself (but I've also been told that the audio progam may be the only one worth paying for. I've heard both sides, but they were both rather vague). I've done a lot of research already, but would like students opinions of the school. Thank you in advance.

28th-Jun-2007 11:25 pm - Wheaton College (IL)
College name: Wheaton College
Location: Wheaton, Illinois
Time of visit: June 2007
Reason for visit: Attending a conference

I spent eight days this month at Wheaton College for a conference. Wheaton is ranked the top college in the country for conference services, and they more or less specialize in them all throughout the summer, so the campus was rather bustling, even if many of the people on campus were non-students.

The first thing to know about Wheaton is that, regardless of what people say, it is not "very close" to Chicago. Read more...Collapse )

Queens College

Queens College once you enter the campus has a pretty campus. There is many buildings in a square all with red tile roofs. Their student union is large and concrete and not very pretty. I mostly talked to the math department which was very nice and very 50 year old Jewish men. Mostly because the department is made up of 50 year old Jewish men. There are no dorms but dorm construction will start in 2008. The campus is located in a urban residential area. You have to leave your ID at the door to get into the library. I am not used to this having mostly gone to college in rural areas. Most of the people who go to Queens College do not seem to recognize that anywhere exists outside of Long Island. Although this was largely true at most of the CUNY schools that I visited I first noticed this at Queens.

Hunter College

Hunter College is located in Manhattan. The "campus" is one building/blob thing that blends into the rest of the city. It is very easy to navigate. The people in the education department were nice and helpful but the people in the mathematics department kept sending me to the math secretary and the math secretary kept sending me to the people in the mathematics department. The library was not terribly memorable. The library in Queens college was defiantly prettier.

City College

City College has a really gorgeous building in the middle of campus. Most of the other buildings were large and boxy but overall the campus was pretty. The area directly around the campus has a lot of red brick. I was at the mathematics department at an awards dinner so one could say I liked this college so much because they bribed me with food but their maths department was also very friendly and seemed accessible. Their average class size for upper level maths courses is 10-12 student which is also an excellent thing.

Thought this might be helpful for some people:

You do, of course, have to shell out almost $10 for it, but if you're going on a road trip, it could be worth it!
