What College/university Will You Attend This Year?

Fri Apr 22, 2005 4:17 am

Well the title of the thread sort of explains it all. We have a lot of members around the college age and I was just curious as to what your decision is for the 2005/2006 school year? Anyone already in college but transferring for one reason or another (if so what is your reason for transfer)?

As for me I'll be going to George Mason University in Fairfax, VA. Major in Government and Int'l Politics and minoring in Latin.

Edit: Forgot to mention that this will be my freshman year

The University of Hawaii at Manoa. I'm transferring from HSU. This place totally sucked. It was cold, the women were ugly, and there was nothing to do on the weekends. Also, a lot of hippies. I didn't think I'd mind them before I came up, but once I did, man I got to hate them. What a bunch of lazy sleazebags. Hippies are the epitome of filth.

That's why I love Oregon: beaches and mountains are only a couple of hours apart. Not too sure about this whole quarter system that U of O uses, though. It seems like a dirty trick to make people think they can graduate faster when in reality, it just evens out.

I work as a tour guide right now (if you have visited Lehigh on a Tuesday at 10:15 am, I might have been your tour guide and I am the only guy working at that time slot). I worked during the College of Busines and Economics as well as the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences candidate's day. I have also helped out in Lehigh Life days. You might have also seen my face in Lehigh's "Welcome Home!" or the residential life booklet that will be sent to you later in the year asking for your roomate preferences. I am also in one of the booklets that are handed out especially to junior high school kids. And come June/July, I will be in one of the admissions office booklet as well - I just did a photo shoot for them last Tuesday.

Next year, I will be visiting college fairs and interview prospective students who request an interview with an alum.
