I just arrived in Beantown. I am meeting my fellow independent educational consultants and hundreds of college and university representatives. We will be spending the week talking about all the issues students and families have during their search for school placement. Tomorrow morning I leave Boston to visit Providence College in Rhode Island. Then it is back to Boston to tour Northeastern University and Wheaton College. After four days at the conference I continue my college tours by visiting Brown, MIT, Harvard, Emerson, and Tufts.
Boston is an incredible city with 52 univeristies/colleges and 250,000+ college students. As I walked around yesterday, I encountered hundreds of college students from so many different institutions. This city just buzzes with the energy that only comes from college students. The quest for knowledge is palpable.
So, if you are looking for a college in a city location….Boston may just be the spot for you. You can take your first college class in the morning and following the Freedom Trail (along the path of Paul Revere) in the afternoon. You can take your next college class and then meet with students from MIT Harvard, Tufts, Brandeis, Boston College, Boston University to discuss politics, history or philosophy. It just doesn’t get much better than this.
