Well, we survived. I was actually kind of surprised how little had changed from a social perspective -even when touring the dorms. In fact, I only saw one T-shirt that read, “Social Justice” and little of anything else notable. It was actually quite refreshing, but likely not a fair reflection of the nation’s University landscape given it’s a private school with a strong Engineering curriculum. My son was impressed and ranked it high on his list of possibilities. His mother and I like that it’s close to home and they offer several scholarships, one of which is targeted toward legacy students -we’ll take all the help we can get.
Financially, the University seemed to be doing very well (they always have) and have expanded their infrastructure and campus in meaningful ways. Overall, it was a very good day and I’m excited at the prospect of at least one of my son’s following in my footsteps -pert near literally.
