College!

One of the weird things I like to know about people is where they went to school, so...

 

-Where do/did you go to college?

-What are/did you studying/study?

-What made you go there?

-If you aren't in college, where do you want to go? or do you?

 

 

I'm currently a freshman at Indiana University. I'm studying Biology to become an opthalmologist, but in all honesty, I'm not sure if I'll stay with it. Being in school for that long doesn't really bother me, I'm just not sure how much interest I have in it.

 

I didn't really want to come to IU because it's in my hometown. I was actually originally going to two different schools (Florida Gulf Coast University and University of Tennessee), but they didn't work out for various reasons (long story). I've grown to like IU a lot though. It's a nice school and environment.

 

So how about the rest of you?

I am going to New England School of Communications (NESCom) up here in Bangor, Maine for almost two years now. I am studying communications, the TV Broadcasting field. What made me decide to go to NESCom was because I wanted to do television but my Dad wanted me to get a four year degree for it, so while browsing collegeboard.com, I found NESCom which was in the New England Area, Had a four year communications degree, and didn't require SAT scores. So NESCom was the only school I applied for and I got in. And I gotta say that NESCom is a really great school and I'm loving every minute.

I go to LA Pierce College which is a counity college not too far from my house. So far I'm not majoring in anything. I'm thinking of going to a different school, because Pierce doesn't offer some class I am interested in.

 

UC Pierce baby!!!

 

Or, as we used to call it ... Pierceton ... get it???

 

I also went to Pierce for 2 years. Then I stopped. I was going to go to SCC (Southern California College, now Vanguard College) but didn't have the $$.

 

My first major was Theology, with a minor in music. Then I switched it to History also with a minor in music.

 

I have been thinking of going back, but when the hell do I have the time for that?

I went to UF for 4 years and got my Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and a minor in Geography.

 

UF was really awesome, I'm all about 4 year schools and the 'college experience'.

-Where do/did you go to college?

Well, when I graduated High School, I worked 2 jobs and went to a community college part time. I then went to a University of Connecticut regional campus for a year before I transfered to Worcester Polytechnic Institute, where I am now.

 

-What are/did you studying/study?

I am currently studying Mechanical Engineering with a Concentration in Aerospace Engineering. In short, Rocket Science!

 

-What made you go there?

Both Robert Goddard and my Grandfather went to school here. And working in a warehouse really SUCKS ASS!!!! I needed to do something with my life. Unfortunatly, it took me two different colleges to get my grades up enough from high school before i could go here.

-Where do/did you go to college?

Cal State University Northridge 2002-2004

 

-What are/did you studying/study?

I majored in Cinema & Television Arts with an emphasis in Multimedia Production.

 

-What made you go there?

I was trying to get into Art Center, but CSUN was more affordable and the CTVA program has a great reputation. Plus, it was close to my family and my (ex) girlfriend. I can't say I regret it, I landed a great job by senior year that I'm still at.

I went to James Madison University in Harrisonburg, VA, right after I graduated from HS. I now attend Old Dominion, which really sucks compared to JMU, mostly because it's an urban school. I really miss the "4 year experience" as Elissa put it, but my life is better without it in many ways. I am almost down with my B.A. which is in English with certification to teach. I chose to go to James Madison, even though I was accepted to Virginia Tech (which most of you have probably heard of). All that Tech wanted was my SAT and GPA along with NOTHING else! It made be feel like such a collegiate whore. James Madison, I feel, is a better school that actually gives a damn about its students. It may not be a Division 1 footbal school, but I love that school. GO DUKES!!!

I want to go to either Whitman College, Lewis & Clark College, Cornell University, or Tufts University. They are all great schools and I'd be thrilled to go to any of them. Well, Cornell is kind of scary actually. I'm not sure if I could handle it!

 

I'd like to study Journalism or Molecular Biology/Biochemistry.

I'm currently attending Christopher Newport University in Newport News, VA. Its an okay campus, nothing special.

 

I'm a Communications major with focus in Public Relations. This could change over time though, but so far so good.

 

I want to transfer to University of Central Florida though. They have a great Comm school and I can work for Disney. Two benefits, what could be better?!

-Where do/did you go to college?

Middle Tennessee State University unfortunately

 

-What are/did you studying/study?

Magazine Journalism major with Spanish and Psychology minors

 

-What made you go there?

I got a full scholarship and was told that it was a good school, but I was lied to. I'd rather have $40K of student debt from a good school than no debt and consequently no education to show for my 4 years at MTSU.

 

Moral of th story : Do not go to MTSU. I do not have one positive thing to say about my 4 years of hell there.

Like Elissa and several others on the board, I'm a Gator. Started in 2001, graduating this year with a BS in Computer Info Sciences and Engineering. There's even a UF themed coaster at Cypress Gardens (it's a Vekoma, but that's another story)

Reason for going there - Best public U in Florida, got a scholarship. Also got other family members going there.

Would that be Swamp Thing? When did they start calling the students swamp things anyways? I must be out of the loop. Go Gators! I hope they win next week, going to be a tough game.

-Where do/did you go to college?

I attended Azusa Pacific University in Azusa, California. I am also almost finished with grad school at the same place. I lived on campus as an undergraduate and got that 'college experience' which I suggest everyone that is able to, do. I loved college!

 

-What are/did you studying/study?

I completed by Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 2000. In 2006 I will have my Master's in Nursing and be a Clinical Nurse Specialist.

 

-What made you go there?

They have a really good nursing program. I also went to a Senior Preview Weekend and had a blast. The crappy thing is I have a crapload of debt.
