College Tour '10: College of Wooster

By Valerie Strauss

College of Wooster
From a parent

There were many things to love about Wooster, but the single most impressive aspect of our visit was the time we spent at the office that works with kids who have learning challenges.

The two women who run the office were warm, funny and treated my kid like an adult who has some challenges with learning, not like a kid whose hand needs to be held (although they said they would be happy to offer hand-holding for those kids who require it). They gave us lots of time and, when we were leaving and commented we had forgotten our map of Ohio, printed out directions to our next stop, along with suggestions of where to stop along the way to get some yummy, if fattening, snacks. They gave us a great sense of the school, more than any generic tour of any campus can provide.

This is one in a series of reports that parents and students are contributing about their campus tours this spring. If you have visited a school and would like to participate, email me a brief report at You can find out more about College Tour ’10 and how to write about your college visit here.
