Allegheny College

Allegheny College (visited 11/8-9/2015)

One major distinction of this CTCL school is that students are required to declare a major and a minor (or 2 majors) in 2 different areas (Humanities, Social Sciences, Natural Sciences, or Interdivisional) – hence the college’s “Unusual Combination” tag line. 1,124 more words

The College of New Jersey

The College of New Jersey (visited 11/14/15)

I had wanted to see TCNJ since a colleague’s son had gone there and thrived. I had heard great stories: not only was he incredibly happy to be there (so happy that he stayed on campus for 2 summers), but he got involved in a lot of research and before he graduated, ended up being published in a textbook that one of his professors wrote. 612 more words
