One of my D20’s criteria is that she’d like to go to a school that has a cute town, some other things to do nearby and a really pretty campus. I’m sure she’ll party some at college but she also likes to just go to dinner/movies/shopping with friends. She wants a smaller school, probably an LAC. She wouldn’t mind being near a city, but not right in one. We have run the NPC’s and can make these work financially. Some that we are looking at visting are listed below. Would love to get a feel for how the campuses looks and the surrounding areas. We have done the virtual tours. She wants either an English or psychology major and most schools seem pretty strong in both.
College of Wooster
Univ of Scranton
Her GPA is 3.7 (avg rigor, some honors and 3 Ap’s) and ACT was a 29 with a 33 in both the reading and English sections. She doesn’t think she wants a southern school (she thinks they will be too conservative) and isn’t worried at all about prestige or rankings.
We have visited:
Marist- loved the campus, school, academics, but surrounding area was not so great.
Clark- loved the academics but campus was small, students a bit too quirky, and didn’t like the area
Hobart- beautiful campus & likes the academics. Town was cute but very small.
