We just came back from visiting Houghton College. I think it was one of the best visits we’ve had in visiting colleges/universities over the past few years.
If you are considering a college and want to know about campus life, I have three suggestions. (If I had four, it could be the ShieldsGroup College Quadrilateral. — you gotta know Wesley to get that.)
- Read the school’s web site.
- Attend a preview weekend and ask students questions like, What are the three biggest controversies on this campus? If you could change one thing about this college, what would it be? What do you love second-most about this college? What can you tell me about this school that you can’t tell parents of perspective students?
- Google the college name and click the VIDEO tab to find student-made videos. This gives you a real inside look at campus life.
In doing number three, I found this.
If you know Wesleyans, it will crack you up. GO JOHN!!! If you liked that, you’ll probably like part-two more.
Easy does it, my Calvinistic friends. If you’re honest, you’ve gotta admit these kids were predestined to be funny. 🙂
