<p>I'm a junior attending a small private school in Indianapolis, Indiana. I have relatively excellent grades, gpa, ACT & SAT scores, participation in extra-curriculars, and service projects. I have visited a numerous amount of colleges, but still have not experieced the feeling of "this is the one". I am basically looking for more places to visit in the coming months based upon:
1. a nursing program (I am interested in health care in general, but have not decided if I want to expand this to a pre-med major, so I plan on starting as a nursing major).
2. School size: Greater than 1,000 but not much larger than 15,000 students
3. Avoid schools categorized as Commuter Schools
4. Lastly, (and this is the picky part), and I know this should not be the overall deciding factor when choosing a college, but I am looking for a school campus that is, well, beautiful. I need a place that is green, with some land, and nature. Notre Dame, for instance, would be my type of campus, where everyone parks their cars outside the grounds and there are hardly any roads running through. I want to avoid the grid-road city setting.
I'm willing to look a maximum 6-8 hours a way from Indianapolis.
Here are the colleges I have visited:
Notre Dame (no nursing program)
Hanover College (absolutely gorgeous, no nursing program, and under 1000 students)
Bellarmine University (pretty, but commuter school)
Miami of Ohio (beautiful, but the nursing program is not offered on the Oxford Campus)
University of Evansville
