Thoughts While Visiting Colleges With My Kid, part IV
March 20, 2012
Two more schools today — Duke and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. We also drove around the Davidson campus this evening, though our tour and information session there aren’t until tomorrow morning.
Duke’s campus is beautiful, probably the most beautiful that we’ve seen on this trip. And UNC’s campus buzzes with energy; you can tell that there is always something great happening somewhere on those grounds. But that said, it seems that neither school is right for my daughter. Duke felt too spread out; UNC felt too crowded. It’s becoming clear that overall (with a couple of notable exceptions) she prefers smaller schools.
Davidson should be interesting.
