Hopefully wherever I end up going will meet all of these. Probably not.

  • I'd like to go to school in a city. After living in New Hampshire for most of my life, I'd like a change of pace. Or if it's not in a city, it has to have a really pretty and green campus.
  • The bookstore must be up to par. I read. A lot. If the bookstore isn't big and pretty and up to my standards, I'm not going to be happy.
  • Some place that has club field hockey would be awesome. I really love field hockey, but I'm not nearly good enough to play at the intercollegiate level, and I don't want to give up the sport entirely. It'd be really cool to have some people to play pick-up games with.
  • I don't want to go farther west than Chicago or farther south than D.C.
  • A strong liberal arts program is a must.
  • The course requirements have to allow me to dabble in all sorts of different subjects.
  • I need a study abroad program. I think this is probably the one thing that I'm not willing to give on. I want to go abroad and find out what else is out there. (Because, frankly, I'm getting a little bored with America. Although the election of Obama helped a lot.)
  • After being at Derryfield for so long, it might be nice to go to a medium-sized or large school.

user picture Bliss: if you're willing to go a little further south than d.c., virginia commonwealth university in richmond, va fits all your criteria! jan 24 2009
user picture Elise: Yeah, I am. I just don't want to go all the way down to the Deep South or out to California or something. Too far from home :) I'll definitely check it out!
user picture Erin: A strong liberal arts program almost always has distributive requirements, which means you basically /have/ to dabble in all sorts of different subjects. :) feb 14 2009
