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

Rider University (visited 11/14/15)

During my tour, I had a hard time figuring out what makes Rider different from other smallish liberal arts schools. It’s a lovely campus with just over 4000 undergrads on the main campus in Lawrenceville. 540 more words
