College Tour '10: Brandeis University
From a student
Rain, rain, rain. I’ve had enough of it on my college trip. It is difficult to not let bad weather dominate the tour of a particular school, but when the school is captivating enough, it’s easy.
That is how I felt about Brandeis – it’s a great school.
With about 3,200 undergrads living in a very suburban, pretty compact campus (with lots of brown buildings, not the most beautiful), it’s a haven for the very intelligent and fun-loving person.
It was a great visit, despite the fact that the students were on spring break and only one student led the entire tour of over 50 people. She did an excellent job.
The information session was well done; I understood their requirements and what they look for in a student, and I didn’t feel like I was sitting there for 20 hours.
As my tour guide said, “We study, we study a lot, and we -------- love it.”
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
