No matter what school you decide on, remember Kurt's rules for college:

1. No classes before 11:00 AM
2. You don't always have to buy the textbook. Sometimes a quick read-through of the textbook at the library the night before an exam is all that is necessary.

I want an owl like that guarding one of our doors!! sweet.

no beer mugs at matthew's I'm assuming! looks like a bossy place! but cricket is an attraction!

p.s. one of em's best friends went to vassar - but given that she's 30 now, I guess her experience there may not be particularly relevant, but if lucy wants to contact her I'm sure sara wouldn't mind - she lives in LA now!

What about people who just seem "apparently intoxicated" much of the time, but aren't?

It looks like a fun college tour.

I like your new subtitle. A sign of blog downsizing, as we have discussed?

Middle Ditch said...

I just love the note about the intoxication.

Looks good!

JGH said...

Dying to know at which college they're playing cricket!!? Decision made. L. should go there.

Are they playing CRICKET????
I didn't know that you Amurricans had even HEARD of cricket!

Squirrel said...

OWL! where was the owl? detail missed.


Cricket is popular in NYC ~ you can always find a cricket match in Central park-- also upstate too--
They even play Camogie regularly in Central Park.
